I want the exact details of abstract classes and interfaces.
And the differences between abstract classes and interfaces.
And also about achieving Multiple inheritance through interfaces.

See the Java Language Specification (JLS). In particular, see section abstract Classes, and Chapter 9: Interfaces.

Then if you have specific questions, post back.

These are common questions, so we suspect we're just being asked to do your homework. That doesn't really help you much. See what you can find to read on the topic, come back and tell us what you think and we'll help if it looks like you need us to.
