"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Nesting an interface inside another interface or class is just a way to add additional information to its name. For example, nesting the interface SomeInterface inside the class SomeClass makes the name of the interface SomeClass.SomeInterface. There's nothing more to it than that.

Other experts have suggested that you avoid that site, because of its general low quality. I suggest the same. In the meantime, what are you actually asking about this stuff? I can't answer your question if you don't type any question marks.
