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;
 }

}

Tree Traversal in JAVA (InOder/preOrder/postOrder)

Tree Traversal in JAVA (InOder/preOrder/postOrder):- Tree traversal can be done through three ways. 1)Inorder:- Go recursively to the left node. Read a node Go recursively to the right node. 2)Pre Order. Read a node Go recursively to the left node. Go recursively to the right node. 2)Post Order. Go recursively to the left node. Go recursively to the right node. Read a node public void inorder ( Node root ) { if ( root == null ) { return ; } inorder ( root . left ); System . out . print ( root . data + "," ); inorder ( root . right ); } public void preOrder ( Node root ) { if ( root == null ) { return ; } System . out . print ( root . data + "," ); preOrder ( root . left ); preOrder ( root . right ); } public void postOrder ( Node root ) { if ( root == null ) { return ; } postOrder ( root . left ); postOrder ( root . right ); Sy
