for example, if I have something like:

public class LotteryTicket{

public Vector numbers;
...
}

public class LotteryTicketGenerator{

...
public void someMethod(){
... LotteryTicket.numbers.get(0)...
}


How can I give LotteryTicketGenerator access to LotteryTicket class without giving all classes access?

put it in the same package and make it package protected

    Vector numbers;

or just protected if you want to also give subclasses access to

   protected Vector numbers;

to create a pcakge you add package statement to top of source

package com.polkadot;

public class LotteryTicket{

Vector numbers;
...
}

And put your source in a directory hierarchy that matches the package hierarchy

eg.  /src/java/com/polkadot/LoteryTicket.java

In Eclipse you can create a new package via new>package
And refactor to move the class into package
