In my knowledge, we can't create an interface within a class or class within an interface.

if anyone has an opinion yes, please let us know the details.

This is an interesting question. And as per my knowledge the answer is 'Yes' for both the questions.

In the 'Map' interface we have inner interface called 'Entry'. (which is a static interface by default)

Do not know of the example of inner class in an interface. But i think it can be created and it would static by default.

So, all the following four are possible:

1. class inside class (obvious )
2. interface inside interface
3. class inside interface
4. interface inside a class

Among all these, most of the times we use only inner classes.

See JLS 6.4.3 - The Members of a Class Type...

The members of a class type (�8.2) are classes (�8.5, �9.5), interfaces (�8.5, �9.5), fields (�8.3, �9.3, �10.7), and methods (�8.4, �9.4).


And JLS 6.4.4 - The Members of an Interface Type...

The members of an interface type (�9.2) may be classes (�8.5, �9.5), interfaces (�8.5, �9.5), fields (�8.3, �9.3, �10.7), and methods (�8.4, �9.4).

I'm not sure why we use this. The following gets compiled fine.

What is this question all about. You can create interface inside class, class inside interface etc.

@Ravikanth well classes inside interfaces are static but not final

Why is everyone looking for further explanation about this.. As everyone knows, there is no actual inner classes or interfaces. All inner classes and interfaces are converted into outer classes. It's just that by nesting a class or interface, you can keep a class that is needed by a method of a class inside that class. Arvind gives a good example for this.
