    Default private final class?

    Hello, please explain why someone would declare such an inner class?
    and especially why final if its a private class?

    Thanks

    Default Re: private final class?

    From my understanding... An inner class is a member of the outer class just like methods and variables... so it can be declared private and final
    Why would you declare a method both private and final ?... If you answered my question ... then you've got your answer

    Possibly the programmer wants to protect the code from him/herself (i.e. extending the inner class in the outer class is not allowed if it is final).

    kind regards,
