    not a java syntax, seems like a visual basic syntax.
    you can use a logical operator to simplify it

    let say I have this statement:
    int i = 0;
    if(i < 10) {
    if(i < 1) {
    if(i > -1) {
    System.out.println("I will simplify it");
    }
    }
    }

    simplified version:
    if(i < 10 && i < 1 && i > -1) {
    System.out.println("Simplified Version");
    }

    I think in vb its or and and.
