    private method access confusion


    when i execute subtest class using java2 , the following code is
    running successfully and giving the output message " main executed" .
    how can a private method of superclass is being accessed in sub class?

    -------------------------------

    public class subtest extends test {
    }


    class test {

    private static void main(String args[]) {

    System.out.println("main executed" );

    }

    }

    They cannot be accessed! The whole point of a class member (variable or method)
    being private is that they cannot be accessed by other classes - even sub
    classes.
