Hi Jon Aryan,
thanks for the example.
I just wanted to know whether abstract keyword has any significance when added to an interface? if so, what?
thanks again

Originally posted by Jon Aryan:
True,,, interfaces provide just the declarations of method and implicitly these methods are "public abstract".
Interfaces are useful when some classes implements it, or some other interfaces extends it.
The interface "LayoutManager" is implemented by classes like FlowLayout, GridLayout etc.
BorderLayout, CardLayout classes implements LayoutManager2.
LayoutManager2 extends LayoutManager.
So BorderLayout, CardLayout classes implements LayoutManager, but not directly.
I dun know whether i answered ur question the way u wanted !!.

Thanks Rong..

just find something in the java bible, jls, which we can rely on, is says: abstract Interfaces
Every interface is implicitly abstract. This modifier is obsolete and should not be used in new programs.

Hi Ajith,
i was just browsing through the servlet API and found that servlet interface is declared as "public abstract interface Servlet" .
can anyone tell me what u mean when u declare an interface as public abstract interface , as interfaces are implicitly abstract and hence have no need to be explicitly stated as such.
thanks in advance Ajith & others,

Methods in an interface are implicitly abstract.
An explicit "abstract" qualifier is redundant and
has no effect on compilation.
[b]abstract interface is same as interface.

interface with explicitly declared abstract methods need not be declared abstract( for abstract classes, this is not true ).

thanks musa..
and good luck for u.

I think u have done a swell of a job esp being from a non maths
this shows that where there is a will there is a way! ;-))

after u've spent 2 weeks on java, now u can try to write small "helloworld" types of programs and make sure u compile and execute the program and check for the errors..
i u start working at 8hrs per day, then 3weeks of preparation should be fine..

and abt the exam, its nothing beyond fundamentals.. lay emphasis on fundamentals..thanks to MarcusGreen & maha all these sites have helped us a lot, especially the discussion forum at javaranch, made my fundamentals clear. Abt my preparation:
i am a housewife with a 1 and 1/2 year old kid & i am from non-maths background, and it took complete 3 weeks for the entire preparation.

1. What would be the result of attempting to compile and run the following piece of code?
public class Test {
static int x; public static void main
(String args[ ])
{System.out.println("Value is " + x);}
The output "Value is 0" is printed.

An "illegal array declaration syntax" compiler error occurs.
A "possible reference before assignment" compiler error occurs.
An object of type ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException is thrown.

2. What should you use to position a Button within an application Frame so that the size of the Button is NOT affected by the Frame size?
a FlowLayout
a GridLayout
the center area of a BorderLayout
the East or West area of a BorderLayout
the North or South area of a BorderLayout

3. Which is the advantage of encapsulation?
Only public methods are needed.
No exceptions need to be thrown from any method.
Making the class final causes no consequential changes to other code.
It changes the implementation without changing the interface and causes no consequential changes to other code.
It changes the interface without changing the implementation and causes no consequential changes to other code.

It is accessible from any other class.
It can only be instantiated in the enclosing class.
It must be final if it is declared in a method scope.

Answer :3
I think the above answer is not correct.
x value is 4 and y is 3 after x=y++ is executed.
