visibility modifiers

 

  The four visibility modifiers are:

 

public

protected

private

the default of “package,”  “same package,” or “friendly

 

  Their order of decreasing visibility is:  public  (most visible)  ->  protected  ->  default/package  ->  private (leastt visible) 

 

  There is no modifier keyword explicitly called “package” - it's just the default situation.
