inner class -

Posted by seba368 on October 09, 2000 at 3:11 PM

Hi all,
I saw this example in the Bruce Eckel book "thinking in java"
and looks like that your main method doesn't have to be in a public class....this class Test is an inner class that is in the public is this a reason??? I always thought that the main method has to be in the public class.
..but maybe since this is inner class that is in the public class that it doesnt....please help.

class Test {
public static void main(String[] args) {
Parcel3 p = new Parcel3();
Contents c = p.cont();
Destination d = p.dest("Tanzania");
// Illegal -- can't access private class:
//! Parcel3.PContents pc = PContents();
} ///:~
Note that since main( ) is in Test, when you want to run this program
you don�t execute Parcel3, but instead:
java Test
