The main purpose of constructor is to initialize the instance variables to give them default values when an object for a class is created . So on this notion abstract class is still a class but has its some methods which is abstract or just marked abstract , so that the other classes can extend it (provide concrete implementation of it) ...

Another difference : Members of an abstract class have default access rights by default ... however, the members of an interface are always public by default !

This abstract class provides default implementations for most of the methods in the TableModel interface. It takes care of the management of listeners and provides some conveniences for generating TableModelEvents and dispatching them to the listeners. To create a concrete TableModel as a subclass of AbstractTableModel you need only provide implementations for the following three methods:

Where in that assignment does it mention interfaces, abstract classes, or polymorphism?

59. difference between interface and abstract class    forums.oracle.com

An interface is a 100% abstract class, which means it doesn't contain any code, just method names and signatures. You use abstract classes when you want some code to be shared among the inheritors. The advantage with interface is that a class can implement as many interfaces as you like, while it can only extend one (abstract) class. So, you use ...

I tend to use abstract classes when I want to have some default behaviour already implemented, and I only want to override a few methods.

I cannot provide default behaviour in an interface, I can choose to implement more than one ...

Yes but 'class' is shorter than 'interface'. OTOH 'abstract class' is longer, and you can omit 'public abstract' in interfaces ... Seriously folks I don't know why this issue is even taught or asked.

Interface class is used to contain methods that is to be defined by children classes.

well atom, how many protons do you have... one... that's inheritance. how many chemical reactions do you support? as many as required... that's the BunsenBurner, and the SoreBum interfaces. An abstract class can (and frequently does) contain implementation. An interface cannot contain implementation. Java doesn't support multiple inheritance (like C++)... so you can extend exactly 0 or 1 classes (which isn't ...

69. Some questions related to "Prefer interfaces to abstract classes"    forums.oracle.com

Yes, one of the reasons interfaces are better is that you can only extend one class, but implement many interfaces. Say you have a concrete class that should "implement" two different types. If those types were defined as abstract classes, you could only use one type. You could implement both types if they were interfaces though.

Can somebody tell me, then, why Joe Doe would want to use an interface over an abstract class?

78. Interfaces and Abstract Classes    forums.oracle.com

I know you can use Abstract classes/interfaces to create method signatures that must be implemented in the extending/implementing class, but is there a way to create variable or constructor signatures that the extending/implementing class has to implement for themselves also? Variables don't have implementations, so no, not really. I assume you realise that a public field will be available to all ...

The difference is 1. on abstract class you can define the implementation of the methods, which is not the case with interface 2.

To use interface, use keyword "implements" About ...

If you want to define a pure abstract type, use an interface. If you want to provide a partial implementation for some type--such as default implementations for methods that can be done without regard to the specific implementation--use an abstract class. And quite often you'll use both. The interface defines the type, and the abstract class implements the interface, providing some ...

I wonder why the Verb2 class compiles. I expected a compilation error, and here is my reasoning. The package-level "isSpelled" method in the Verb2 class is fine. However, class Verb2 implements interface Word, and class Verb2 does not appear to fulfill the interface contract. That is, the "isSpelled" method in class Verb2 has a different method signature than the interface Word ...

83. I don't understand the concepts of Abstract Classes and Interfaces    forums.oracle.com

I have read so many articles about Abstract Classes and Interfaces, but still I cannot understand their real use.
