public class A
protected int a = 10;
public static void main(
public class B extends A
public static void main(String args)
A a1 = new A();
I am getting a compilation error: 'a' has protected access in A. But protected means it can be accessible in sub class which is in different package also right

Locking this one, since it's exactly the same as the other post, even though it's by another user. (Do you have two accounts??).
