I know what abstract classes and what interfaces are. But, whey would we need to declare an interface as 'abstract'? For ex: (FilterChain interface of javax.servlet.http). I do not see any necessity of declaring an interface as an abstract. Am I missing something? Can some one please shed some light? -Bala
That's what the JLS says in 188.8.131.52 abstract Interfaces "Every interface is implicitly abstract. This modifier is obsolete and should not be used in new Java programs. " W.

Thanks for clarifying that Wilfried. So, what does this mean? That the people who wrote the lattest Servlet API would did NOT read the JLS? And I thought I was the only one who tried to learn Java without reading the JLS. hehe!
