Hello Friend,
As per an oracle documentation put at http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/java/javaOO/nested.html

Static nested classes do not have access to other members of the enclosing class

However, the above code contradicts the statement.

Please comment.

"Members" generally refers to non-static fields. Take the static off the var definition and see how far you get.


Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?

And like static class methods, a static nested class cannot refer directly to instance variables or methods defined in its enclosing class
— it can use them only through an object reference

From the reference what you have given.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
