Java uses two keywords to inherit – extends and implements. The difference of them and their usage is trivial to understand. Introduction Java Extends vs Implements Go through the following combinations and rules one-by-one. Write small programs and practice. It is required to master them for a better Developer. 1.…

Java Extends vs Implements

Extends vs Implements: Once you know the basic structure of a Java class, know inheritance with concrete classes and abstract classes, know to inherit interfaces, it is the time for both extends and implements where you inherit classes and interfaces to one class. For example, you have two classes (one…

Java Implements

In Java implements is a keyword. Where to use implements keyword in Java coding? We know Java does not support multiple inheritance. That is, one class cannot extend or inherit two classes. That is, following code does not work. class Bird { } class Animal { } public class Ostrich…

Multi level Inheritance Java

In the earlier, Bird-Ostrich inheritance program, Ostrich extends only one class, Bird, because Ostrich wants to walk and the method is there in Bird’s class. Now Ostrich also wants to eat but the eat() method is there in another class Animal. Now, it is required to Ostrich to extend two…

Extends Java Multiple classes

Extends Java An OOPs language is meant more for reusability. It achieves reusability with "has-a" relation (through composition) and "is-a" relation (through inheritance). For "has-a" relationship, known as composition in Java, refer Composition – "has-a" Relationship. Now let us discuss inheritance and how the reusability is achieved. To get the…

Inheritance Tutorial Java

Composition vs Inheritance After Encapsulation, the second OOPS feature is "Inheritance". In the previous Parrot program, the Parrot created an object of Bird and used Bird's method eat(). Now in inheritance, we call the eat() method with Parrot object itself (and not with Bird object). This is the difference between…

Types of Inheritance Tutorial Java

Types of Inheritance There exists basically three types of inheritance. Multilevel inheritance Multiple inheritance Hierarchical inheritance 1. In single inheritance, one class extends one class only. In multilevel inheritance, the ladder of single inheritance increases. 2. In multiple inheritance, one class directly extends more than one class. 3. In hierarchical…
