Hi,

I will be thankful if any body clears my doubt.

Q] What is the difference between access modifiers and modifiers?

As per my knowledge access modifiers indicates visibility of a
class and it's members?

Why keywords final, static, strictfp, abstract, voltile, native,
synchronized are called modifiers?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Gopal.

Access modifiers are keywords used to specify the declared accessibility of a member or a type. There are three access modifiers in Java: public, protected and private. However, there are four access controls (levels of access), the fourth being default or package level access (no modifier added). A class can only use public or default, while most methods and variables take all four.

Nonaccess modifiers modify the declaration of a member or a type. They can be used in addition to whatever access control there is on a class.
A class declaration can be modified with keywords final, abstract, or strictfp (note: you can't always mix nonaccess modifiers).
Methods and instance variables can also take transient, synchronized, native, strictfp, and static as modifiers.
