SubClass Constructor Question

Hello everyone,


and ...

Why is it that the "new FundamentalsTest();" statement in line 9 is not valid but the constructor chaining call by SubFundamentals to the FundamentalsTest() constructor is valid?

Many Thanks,

SCJP 1.5, SCJD 1.6

The class named FundamentalsTest is not in the same package as SubFundamentals. The constructor of FundamentalsTest is protected, hence you cannot call it directly from a different package.
