Hi everyone,

I wanted to know what is the general approach inner classes. In my project, I have an inner class that is private. As of now, I am fixing a defect and so for debug purpose planning to make it public class and test the method I needed to and once i figure out the issue, I am planning to make the class private and keep it that way. But i wanted to if there is a better approach and if I am missing it.

thanks,
Kavitha.

if the class is a inner class.you cannot access it outside without the instance of outer class even if you make it public.
