      Description

      The problem of referring to a nonstatic class from a static context is the same when the name is available by virtue of being imported. Does an imported class name always have an erased outer?


      package p;

      import p.A.C;

      class A<T> {
          public class C {
              T x = null;
          }
      }

      class Main {
          {
              C c = null;
              c.x = "foo"; // what is the type of c.x?
          }
      }
