In S&B book page 645, in the last paragraph it has been explained why an method-local class cannot access local variables of the method. All if fine until this line comes up: "Unless the local variables are marked final!"

My question here is will a final local variable resides on heap and not on stack so that method-local inner instance can use it?

The method-local inner class simply gets a copy of the value.
