Nesting of Methods in Java

A method can be called by using only its name by another method of the same class that is called Nesting of Methods. A method of a class can be called only by an object of that class using the dot operator. So, there is an exception to this. When a method in java calls another method in the same class, it is called Nesting of methods.
