(Note that while the containment hierarchy of local classes is independent of the inheritance hierarchy, it is technically possible toestablish an inheritance relationship between a local class and one of its enclosing classes. For example, by making a couple of minor modifications,it is possible to cause the local class B in this program to extend the enclosing class A instead of the top-level class Y .)

The controlling class

The entire controlling class named InnerClasses07 , including the main method and a static variable named baseTime , is shown in Listing 1 .

The static variable named baseTime is initialized with the current date and time in milliseconds (relative to January 1, 1970). This static variable is used later as a base to establish the relative points in time thatcertain activities occur during the execution of the program.

The main method

The main method shown in Listing 1 instantiates a new object of the class named A and calls the method named meth on that object.

This method will sequentially instantiate two separate objects of a local class named B that is defined inside the method named meth . Then the method named meth will call a method named showB on each of those objects, causing them to display data values that illustrate the characteristicsof local classes.

The class named X

The top-level class named X is shown in Listing 2 .

The class named A extends this class to illustrate the difference between the inheritance hierarchy and the containment hierarchy. Note that thisclass defines and initializes a protected instance variable, which will be accessed later to illustrate the inheritance hierarchy.

(Somewhat surprisingly, you will also see later that this protected instance variable belonging to the superclass of the enclosing class A is also accessible by methods belonging to an object of the local class viathe containment hierarchy.)

The class named Y

The top-level class named Y is shown in Listing 3 .

The local class named B extends this class to illustrate the difference between the inheritance hierarchy and the containment hierarchy.

Note that this class defines and initializes a protected instance variable. It alsooverrides the toString method, which is inherited from the Object class.

The instance variable and the overridden toString method will be accessed later to illustrate the inheritance hierarchy.

The class named A

The code in Listing 4 shows the beginning of the top-level class named A .

This code declares and initializes a private instance variable named aTime , which establishes the relative time that an object of class A is instantiated.

This private instance variable will be accessed directly by code belonging to an object of the local class B , which is contained by an object of the class A .

Listing 4 also shows the constructor for class A , which displays the time whenever an object is instantiated from class A .

The screen output

The code shown earlier in the main method of Listing 1 instantiates an object of class A . This causes the screen output shown in Figure 2 .

(Note that the relative time output value on your system may be different, depending on the speed of your system and the impact of otherapplications that may be running concurrently.)

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
