The default no-arg constructor is created by the compiler implicitly.

Can someone verify the following:

The access type of a default constructor is the same as the access type of the declared class.

So if the class in question is

the default no-args constructor which is implicitly created
will have access modifier "default" (also known as package access).

Please confirm.
Thanks in advance.
