In a previous video, I described how to define a class that's a member of another class.…These are called simply member classes.…When you do find that sort of class it's only visible to the class in which it's contained.…I'm now going to dive a little bit further down the encapsulation rabbit hole and show…you how to define a local inner class.…A class that's defined within a code block, for example, a code block that's a part of…the method definition and is only visible within that code block. I'll demonstrate this…using the project local classes, and I'll work with this class OliveJar.java.…
In this class, I have an existing method named reportOlives, which loops through the array…list of all of objects, and reports each olive's oliveName property.…I'm going to make an arbitrary rule for my application, purely for the point of demonstration.…That before I can report the olives I have to open the jar lid, and I'm also going to…make another arbitrary decision that this class, the jar lid I'm about to create, is only…
