1. Consider the following code
public class Outer{
class Inner{}
public void methodA()
{
/////
}
}
What are the valid ways to create an instance of the inner class from methodA ?
1. Inner i = new Inner();
2. Outer.Inner i = new Inner();
3. Outer.Inner i = new Outer.Inner();
4. Inner i = new Outer.Inner();
5. Outer.Inner i = new Outer().new Inner();
6 Object o = new Outer().new Inner();
The answer given is 1, 2, 5, 6
but when run in JDK, all are valid statement to create an instance of inner class.
My code is like this:
class Outer
{
class Inner {int a = 2;}

public void aMethod(){
Inner i = new Inner(); // this.Inner i = new this.Inner()
System.err.println(i.a);
Outer.Inner i2 = new Inner();
System.err.println(i2.a);
Outer.Inner i3 = new Outer.Inner();
System.err.println(i3.a);
Inner i4 = new Outer.Inner();
System.err.println(i4.a);

Outer.Inner i5 = new Outer().new Inner();
System.err.println(i5.a);

Object o = new Outer().new Inner();
System.err.println(((Inner) o).a);
}
public static void main(String[] args){
Outer o = new Outer();
o.aMethod();
}
}
Can somebody give me some clue?
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
