    Default Gathering variables?

    I have a question on general Java.

    Say I have a class:


    Mod1:

    package com.deathman12e3

    public class Mod1
    {

    public static Item hi = new Item(1000);

    }


    and


    Mod2:

    package com.deathman12e3

    public class Mod2
    {

    public static Item hello;

    }


    How would I set "hello" to "hi" with out doing this?

    public static Item hello = Mod1.hi;

    Umm if you are trying to refer to a variable unstaticly you can use methods
    IE in Mod1.java have..
    public Item getItem(){
        return hi;
    }

    and then reference the public void from the new object in your Mod2.java
    public Item hello = Mod1.getItem();
