what is wrapper class one example

Wrapper class is same as inner class in Java . Basically to achive some extractra functionality which is not there in  one object directly we need t create a wrapper object from the class .
Suppose you want to wrap a check box with each contact record as contact obejct do n't have check box .You can add one check box field in contact which may help you without wrapper .But some cases it will not help .
So basically we can achive this without field ,by the help of wrapper class .
Please follow below link for example of contact object with check box .

Like this if you want to wrap more than one object in one object and use in page ,then also you can create a wrapper class .

Any way in simple way you can say any thing is not possible through direct one object we can create wrapper class and achive that .

Controller class :-
public class wrapperClassController {

	//Our collection of the class/wrapper objects cContact 
	public List<cContact> contactList {get; set;}

	//This method uses a simple SOQL query to return a List of Contacts
	public List<cContact> getContacts() {
		if(contactList == null) {
			contactList = new List<cContact>();
			for(Contact c: [select Id, Name, Email, Phone from Contact limit 10]) {
				// As each contact is processed we create a new cContact object and add it to the contactList
				contactList.add(new cContact(c));
		return contactList;

	public PageReference processSelected() {

                //We create a new list of Contacts that we be populated only with Contacts if they are selected
		List<Contact> selectedContacts = new List<Contact>();

		//We will cycle through our list of cContacts and will check to see if the selected property is set to true, if it is we add the Contact to the selectedContacts list
		for(cContact cCon: getContacts()) {
			if(cCon.selected == true) {

		// Now we have our list of selected contacts and can perform any type of logic we want, sending emails, updating a field on the Contact, etc
		System.debug('These are the selected Contacts...');
		for(Contact con: selectedContacts) {
		contactList=null; // we need this line if we performed a write operation  because getContacts gets a fresh list now
		return null;

	// This is our wrapper/container class. A container class is a class, a data structure, or an abstract data type whose instances are collections of other objects. In this example a wrapper class contains both the standard salesforce object Contact and a Boolean value
	public class cContact {
		public Contact con {get; set;}
		public Boolean selected {get; set;}

		//This is the contructor method. When we create a new cContact object we pass a Contact that is set to the con property. We also set the selected value to false
		public cContact(Contact c) {
			con = c;
			selected = false;
