This tutorial describes Java access modifiers in detail. They control the visibility for Java classes and their members (functions and data). They are public, private, and protected.
However, Java also implements a default case when no modifier is present. It means that a class, its functions, fields are only accessible by other classes in the same module.
By the way, there are majorly four types of access modifiers in Java. Let’s discuss each of them in detail and with the help of examples.
The following are the points that we’ll discuss today.
OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.
In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

According to some surveys, such as JetBrains’s great survey, Java 8 is currently the most used version of Java, despite being a 2014 release.
What you are reading is one in a series of articles titled ‘Going beyond Java 8,’ inspired by the contents of my book, Java for Aliens. These articles will guide you step-by-step through the most important features introduced to the language, starting from version 9. The aim is to make you aware of how important it is to move forward from Java 8, explaining the enormous advantages that the latest versions of the language offer.
In this article, we will talk about the most important new feature introduced with Java 10. Officially called local variable type inference, this feature is better known as the **introduction of the word **
var. Despite the complicated name, it is actually quite a simple feature to use. However, some observations need to be made before we can see the impact that the introduction of the word
var has on other pre-existing characteristics.

Access means to approach, and Access Modifiers are those keywords that define the namespace of variables, methods, constructors, classes, etc. Access Modifier is the keywords in object-oriented languages, which makes to understand who can approach that particular Data member, method, Class, etc.
Access modifiers in Java language help to restrict a scope of the class, constructor, variable, method, or the data member. There are four types of access modifiers available in Java language.

A private constructor in Java is used in restricting object creation. It is a special instance constructor used in static member-only classes. If a constructor is declared as private, then its objects are only accessible from within the declared class. You cannot access its objects from outside the constructor class.
Private constructors in Java are accessed only from within the class. You cannot access a private constructor from any other class. If the object is yet not initialised, then you can write a public function to call the private instructor. If the object is already initialised, then you can only return the instance of that object. A private constructor in Java has the following use-cases:
The private constructor in Java is used to create a singleton class. A singleton class is a class in Java that limits the number of objects of the declared class to one. A private constructor in Java ensures that only one object is created at a time. It restricts the class instances within the declared class so that no class instance can be created outside the declared class. You can use the singleton class in networking and database connectivity concepts.

Let’s say you want to assign the value of one data type into another variable of another data type, so there might be a case that they are not compatible with each other. To overcome this problem, we have one solution that we are going to learn today, called ‘Type Casting’ In Java, if both data types are compatible with each other, then it automatically has done its conversion, which is known as ‘Automatic type conversion.’
Typecasting is used to convert an object or variable of one type into another.
There are two types of typecasting in Java they are:
We will learn about these two types of typecasting.
