Ok, so if
modelS has all the same properties, I should be able to access
Results in :
Main.java:13: error: name has private access in Car System.out.println(modelS.name); ^ 1 error
Why? Notice we had mentioned
private before the variable
name in class
Car. This marks the variable as
private to the class which means that the variable cannot be modified or accessed from another class, even if an object of the class is instantiated. So, unless you provide a public
setter method or any other
public method to access the variable, there is no way it’s visible to the outside world.
There are other kinds of access modifiers such as public, protected, default etc. Read more about them here.
