Any guesses as to why HttpServet class is abstract ?
None of the methods in the class are abstract. So why is the class abstract.
Is it bcos we shudnt instantiate the class ?

I guess that HttpServlet class was made an abstract since it is not much use on it own.
You need to overwrite one method (normally doGet or doPost or both)

I agree. Here's the link:
subject: Why HttpServlet is abstract ?
interface is nothing but a pure abstract class. why interface does not has constructor
why java's Object class not abstract ?
about Class AbstractCollection
Why a class declared as Abstract, cannot have any abstract method declaration?
