public class Sandys{
private int court;
public static void main(String argv[]){
Sandys s = new Sandys(99);
System.out.println(s.court);
}
Sandys(int ballcount){
court=ballcount;
}
}
</b>
The result:Compilation and run with an output of 99
i thought private instance variable should be matched with a get method
,in this case getCourt{},so when should i define a get method in a class?

Out must be 99...
court is an instance variable and is automatically initialized with 0. In the constructor of Sandys, court is initialized with 99. and no getCourt method is required.

Hi,
Normally get and set methods are used to access private (encapsulated) variables from another class.
