I have questions concerning Java interfaces. They are:
Q1) Must an interface be defined in a separate .java file?
Q2) Can an interface be defined in the same class file that calls
Q3) Are interfaces used only for methods & data already
defined in Java supplied packages?
Q4) Aren't interfaces also used to stub methods which are
defined (but not yet written) in order to get a clean
Any examples of a simple interface implementation would also be very helpful. Thanks!
