Hi,

I can understand the basic difference between the Interface and Abstract classes.
But I dont get the reason why these two were separately created in Java.
As i could see that what ever I want to acheive in Interface, I could very well achieve in Abstract Classes.
Can any one explain (bit in detail) what for these two were differentiated in Java.

Can any one help me in understanding the bottom line difference between Interface and Abstract Classes.
