As much I know a local inner class can't be static also it can't has access modifiers public,protected or private, it can only be
final or abstract..

I agree with Nasir,
Local inner class can't be explicitely declared as static, if the method in which it is declared is static then it implicitely becomes static. Even u cant provide any access modifiers. These classes can only access final variables of the enclosing method and r having full accessability for all the variables and method outside the enclosing method ie in that class.
For a local inner class which is inside a static method the rule is that it can only access final variables of the enclosing method, and static variables and method of the class. However u cant declare any static variables in a local inner class.
Please correct me if i m wrong some where.

For life to be easy, down goes the rule from Mughal & Rasmussen.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Entity Declaration Direct access Ability to
context to Context define members
----------------------------------------------------------------
Non-static As non-static All members Only
inner class class member in enclosing non-static
context
Local class In block with All members Only
(non-static) non-static in enclosing non-static
context context
+
local final
variables.
Local class In block with Static members Only
(static ) static in enclosing non-static
context context
+
local final
variables.

Oops sorry about the scattered collection :-)
Hopefully the following turns user friendly.
