i came across these two terms, implementation inheritance and type inheritance, while going throught the Timestamp API.
can anyone please explain what do they actually mean.
my inference is that implementation inheritance is using interfaces implementation and type inheritance is sub classing. am i right.
what is the meaning and signigifance of these two concepts and whcih is better to use..?
