Inner Classes and Reflection

  • John Hunt


One of the new features introduced back in version 1.1 of the JDK was inner classes. These are classes defined with the scope of an outer (or top-level) class. These inner classes can be defined within the main body of a class, within a block of statements or (anonymously) within an expression. This chapter introduces inner classes and considers where and when they should be used.
