Hi there,
well i just read some articles on inner classes and got the concept. But still what i want to know that what are the advantages and disadvantages of using inner classes?

Can you tell me some situation that shows if we use inner classes we can easily maintain the code or it will be hard to maintain?

Wherever i wrote "inner class", that includes both static and non static inner class.
I am waiting for your replies.
Thanks in advance.
