Hi All,
if we have a interface with some fields and all the class is implementing that interface does in each class will create a reference for the static fields or it will not do it?
is it good to do like this
interface a{
int aa=0;
class b implemets a{


class c{


either doing like class c is better or class a

The aa variable is implicitely public static final both are correct (if you remember to add a method to your classes and commas).
The advantage of the a.aa style is that the code is easier to read because you know from where it came the aa parameter.
Just a final note: do not start class names with non-capital letter... it is better you get used to some java standard
