Hi all,
I have this doubt in my mind. Can the interfaces and abstract classes have constructors? If yes, what is their significance as neither interfaces nor abstract classes can be instantiated.
Thanks in advance,
Aman

hi amandeep,
interface CAN NOT have constructors.
but abstract classes can have.
now when the constructor of abstract class is used ---
just run the following program and u'll come to know
program statrd
abstract class Person{
public Person()
{
//initialization common to all persons.
System.out.println("initialization common to all persons");

}
}
class Doctor extends Person
{
public Doctor()
{
//initialization specific to doctors.
System.out.println("initialization specific to doctors");
}
}
class Medi{
public static void main(String s[])
{
System.out.println("producing doctor");
Doctor d = new Doctor();
}
}
end of program
output of the above program is
-----------------------------------------
producing doctor
initialization common to all persons
initialization specific to doctors
-----------------------------------------
so u see in the constructor of abstract class u can do the initialization task which will be common to the sub classes
hope this helps
regards
dekasha
