Dear all,
I had three packages







So here protected variable get accesed in class 2 and class 3 only...if protected variable accesed in class2 why not it has been accesed in class21 as in book(SCJP preparation) they are telling once the protected variable is accesed through sub-class it will become private for that class so i agree with this so other classes can't access (class21 cant acess class2 inherited protected variable) so when we extend class2 in another package(test3-class3)it will be acceses how this is possible

Protected variables of a class, can be accessed by all subclasses... ie. class test21 should have no issues accessing the protected variable of class test1.
