Hi ,
Is it possible for a method of the outer class to access a private member of an inner class ?

<html><body>Yes you can access them and here is an example to prove that:
<code>
public class outer {
class inner {
private int t=8;
}
public void inneraccess(){
inner i=new inner();
System.out.println(i.t);
}
public static void main(String arg[]){
outer o=new outer();
o.inneraccess();
}
}
</code></body></html>
