      Description



      Name: nt126004 Date: 08/08/2002


      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.4.0_01"
      Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0_01-b03)
      Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0_01-b03, mixed mode)


      FULL OPERATING SYSTEM VERSION : Windows 2000


      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      Can we please have inner classes that allow static
      declarations?

      I have an an inner class that logically requires a static
      variable, just as a top-level class might require a static
      variable. Instead, I have to put the static variable in the
      outer class, where it doesn't belong.

      Maybe there's something I don't understand...I don't see a
      technical reason for preventing inner classes from having
      statics.

      Thanks
