Can't imagine this question hasn't been asked before, but I'm not having any luck finding it -- what is the functionality of having a default-access class with a public constructor?

Thanking you in advance....

Welcome to JavaRanch

You can extend it into a public class in the same package. I am sure there are other uses, however. Anybody else?
I agree. Here's the link:
