The above code compiles without any problem. According to me it should not compile since in the 2nd line of main method since a private variable is directly accessed using object reference. And also the declaration of i is also making forward referencing to the j variable, which should also give an compilation error. Can any one give me proper explanation.......

All your code is in one class, so access modifiers do not make any difference. A class can always see all of its own members: fields and methods.
Many types of "forward reference" are perfectly OK in Java. See the Language Specification for more details, if you care about them.
