Hi,

I have doubt in the marker interface.
What is marker interface? If the interface is not having any methods, then it said to be marker inetface?. What is advantage of using marker interface?

That link is related to the performance of list iteration, and doesn't seem to be directly pertinent to the concept of a "marker interface".

I recommend the following:
What is a "marker" interface?
Marker Interface pattern
c2.com - Marker Interface
experts.about.com - Marker Interfaces
The Purpose of the Marker Interface
Maximize your Design ROI with Marker Interfaces and JavaDoc

I also recommend that when feeling the urge to ask "what is a...?" that your first response should be to use a suitable search engine. Chances are good that someone has already published a very good definition of the term in question. You will save yourself the time of waiting for a response, and the time of others from repeating information that already exists elsewhere.

Good luck!
