    in its own file
    The name of the java source file must match the name of the public class it contains.
    public class XYZ
    must be in the file XYZ.java

    But what happens when i have to extends some class? I had try it and it's a mistake.
    for example:
    public class ABX{
    //some txt
    }
    public class Letters extends ABX{
    //some txt
    }
    it said that Letters must be defined in its own file

    There can only be ONE public class in a source file. Only the class whose name matches the source file name can be public.
    Remove the public attribute for the other classes.
