class A {
private static int counter;
public static int getCounter(){return counter++;}
private static int innerCounter;
public static int getInnerCounter(){return innerCounter++;}
private String name;
A() {name = "A" + getCounter();}
class B {
private String name;
B() {
name = "B" + getInnerCounter();
System.out.print(A.this.name + name);
}}
void m1() {new A().new B();} // 1
void m2() {new A.B();} // 2
void m3() {new B();} // 3
public static void main(String[] args) {
A a1 = new A();
a1.m1(); a1.m2(); a1.m3();

Hi Vad,
Thank you for the link. I think I understood.
In case of line 2, A0 is being printed. Is it because of the reason that the instance of B is not associated with any instance of A at that point?
