Program: How to access top level class variables from static member classes?


Description:
Since static code does not have a this reference, you can not access
instance variable of a top level class. You can only access static
members of a top level class.

Code:
package com.java2novice.nested.classes;

public class MyStatMemClassAcsVars {
	
	public static String staticVar = "You can access me!!!";
	private String privVar = "You cannot access me";
	
	public static class ChildClass{
		
		public void myMethod(){
			//you can access all static members of 
			//top level class
			System.out.println(staticVar);
			//you cannot access instance members of
			//top level class
			//below line gives compile error
			//System.out.println(privVar);
		}
	}
	
	public static void main(String a[]){
		MyStatMemClassAcsVars.ChildClass cc = new MyStatMemClassAcsVars.ChildClass();
		cc.myMethod();
	}
}

Output:
You can access me!!!

Preemptive scheduling Vs Time slicing?
Preemptive scheduling: The highest priority task executes until it enters the waiting or dead states or a higher priority task comes into existence.

Time slicing: A task executes for a predefined slice of time and then reenters the pool of ready tasks. The scheduler then determines which task should execute next, based on priority and other factors.
Famous Quotations
Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.
