hi everybody,
The following code catches the following error...

Can any one say why it is not possible to create object for an inner class..

class j{
int p=58;
class k{
int l=87;
}
public static void main(String argsssss[]){
j obj1=new j();
k obj2=new k();
}

}

/*Output
F:\san>javac j.java
j.java:8: non-static variable this cannot be referenced from a static context
k obj2=new k();
^
1 error
*/

Thanks in advance..

The inner class is a member of the class definition, and cannot be accessed from a static context.

In the main method you need to create an instance of the class first, and then use that to create the instance of the inner class.
