Difference between Abstract Class and Interface


Difference between Abstract Class and Interface

Difference between abstract class and interface ?

Abstract Class:-

1) Can have abstract and non-abstract method both.
2) One class can extend at most one class.
3) can declare non abstract method and also can define body for it.


Interface:-
1) can have only abstract method.
2) One class can implement multiple interfaces.
3) can't delare body to a method.

Please look below example for more understanding:-



package Basics;

public abstract class Animal {

 int  head;
 //no body (unimplemented function need to override in child class as a
 //compulsion
 abstract void setLegs();
 
 //having body
 //may override or may not
 void setHead()
 {
  head=1;
 }
 
 
 
}


package Basics;

// can have only methods and by default all are abstract need to be override
//by implementing class, unlike abstract no method can havedefinition
public interface Pet {

 void tellWhereAreYouFrom(String place);
 String tellYourWeight(String weight);
 
}

package Basics;


// can extend one class but can implement multiple interface
public class Dog extends Animal implements Pet{

 //must override all abstract methods from Parent class
 @Override
 void setLegs() {
  
  System.out.println("i have four legs");
  
 }

 //must override all methods from an interface
 @Override
 public void tellWhereAreYouFrom(String place) {
  System.out.println("My place is"+place);
  
 }

 @Override
 public String tellYourWeight(String weight) {
  
  return weight;
 }

}

How to design a Node in Tree?

How to design a Node in Tree?

There are three main components of a tree in a node.

 1) Integer holding data.
2) Left pointer holding node in a left subtree.
3) Right pointer holding node in a right subtree.

The following design is having data of int type and left,right pointers of a node to the subtrees.


package com.BST;publicclassNode{int data; Node left; Node right;/** * @return the data */publicNode(int data){this.left=null;this.right=null;this.data=data;}publicintgetData(){return data;}/** * @param data the data to set */publicvoidsetData(int data){this.data= data;}/** * @return the left */public Node getLeft(){return left;}/** * @param left the left to set */publicvoidsetLeft(Node left){this.left= left;}/** * @return the right */public Node getRight(){return right;}/** * @param right the right to set */publicvoidsetRight(Node right){this.right= right;}/* (non-Javadoc) * @see java.lang.Object#toString() */@Overridepublic String toString(){return"Node [data=&quo…

What is an object ?

object is a real world entity.

Object is an instance of the class.It means something that is alive. Let us take an example of CAR:-

concept of a car is class. I mean we all know that it is having four tyres , one engine , four doors , a seat e.t.c. but we can't do anything just by the concept we need real Car to perform operations on it . This real car is what we call is an object.


Explain about main()method in java ?

main() method is an entry point of a program.
public static void main(String[] args)

Why main()method is public, static and void in java ?

public: It can be accessed from anywhere.
static: no class object need to call this method.
void: it is not returning anything in back.

What is JIT compiler ?

JIT is just in time compiler.JIT compiler runs after the program has started and compiles the code (usually bytecode or some kind of VM instructions) on the fly (or just-in-time, as it's called) into a form that's usu…
