How to change value of instance variable and local variable at run time?

843798 Newbie

As we can change value at run time using debug mode of Eclipse. I want to do this by using a standalone prgram from where I can change the value of a variable at runtime.

Suppose I have a class, say employee like -

class employee {

public String name;

employee(String name){ = name;
public int showSalary(){
int salary = 10000;
return salary;
public String showName()
return name;

i want to change the value of instance variable "name" and local variable "salary" from a stand alone program?
My standalone program will not use employee class; i mean not creating any instance or extending it. This is being used by any other calss in project.

Can someone tell me how to change these value?

Please help
