I have gone through some material,i got the following details. Please let me know whether this is correct or not... Thanks


Access Specifiers
They are used to set the visibility of a
class or variable or a method. Classes can be Public or
Default.Variables and methods can be
public,private,protected or default

Access Modifiers
They are used to optionally declare a
field.That is we can set access modifiers for class,method
or variables. Classes can have modifier like Abstract.
Methods can have abstract, native,synchronised etc..

If you go through the Java™ Language Specification index, you won't find "specifier," and private and protected and public are called modifiers.

You can have protected and private classes, but only inner or nested classes.
