How to make a Variable public?

Posted by Avin Sinanan on November 28, 2001 at 2:16 AM

Does anyone know how to make a variable public to all classes?
take for example the code>..

import java.awt.*;
import java.awt.event.*;
import javax.swing.*;
import javax.swing.event.*;
import java.util.*;

class Compare
public static void main(String[] args)
JFrame frame = new JFrame("One");

String name1 ;
String name2 ;


class Class1
public String method1()
name1= "Rick" ;
return name1;

class Class2
public String method2()
name2 = "Jenny";
return name2;

does anyone know how to make classses Class1 and Class2 recognise
the Strings name1 and name2 without adding a variables to Class1 and Class2. IS there anyway to make variables golbally accessable.. so that it can be recognised anywehere within a program..even within other classes?
And please don't tell me to delcare String name1 and String name2 within Class1 and Class2 respectively. I really need for my variables to be declared within the public class.
