what is "a"

Posted by saddysan on July 17, 2001 at 11:25 AM

There is a slight problem, u r using
this.a = a;
this.a means there should be an instance variable called a apart from local variable "a", just add one more line and the program should run

public class outt{
String a;
outt(String a){this.a=a;}

class inn{}


> I am trying to make a simple nested class but keep getting the error;
> "Type expected" for the class inn{}

> public class outt{

> outt(String a){this.a=a;}

> class inn{}

> }
> Why is the compiler refusing to compile this?

> Thanks, Michael
