Encountring error while implementing functions in abstract class

Hi,
I have an abstract class A
which has the following functions :
1) private B()
2) abstract C()

Now when i create an object of this class somewhere else like :
A a = new A()
{
C()
{
//i am unable to access private functions and variables from here
}
}

The issue i am encountring is that why i am unable to call private methods or access private variables from inside the functions ? why does java not allow this .. it seems bit odd to me.. Please explain..
Also whats the solution if i want to access a fucntion

Thanks

You're not actually. You're creating an object from a subclass of A. If you want to override and invoke its methods irrespective of package location, you need to mark the methods of the base class with the modifier protected or public

HI,
If i am creating an object from a subclass of A then how is it represented. I mean there is one way in which
i can explicity define a class  X implementing the Abstract class A. This will have a name etc. and I know i have created an object of type X whereas in above case what is the class whose object is created there is no name specified.
CEHJCommented:
To be more precise still, what you've done is created an object, the type of which is an anonymous subclass of A and assigned it to a reference of type A

Personally i avoid anonymous classes - they militate against self-documenting code and produce nastily named binaries which can be more easily overlooked when moved around
