I also have one query on the same...
An inner class in an Interface...
here is a sample..
class test_class implements Test
public static void main(
Inner_test in_t = new Inner_test();
This works fine... but my query is how can it work??
we are making an object of non-static class in static context.
which should return compilation errror....
May be i am overconcerned because of which i have overlooked an imp concepts....
But what i think it can work only when Inner_test is implicitly static in the interface. but IS IT???
waiting for reply...

Like fields, all inner classes inside interfaces are automatically public and static.
