class A
method(){ implmntn 1}

class B
method(){ implmntn 2}

class D
method(){ implmntn 3}

class myClass needs methods implemented by other three classes ,Not by creating a reference variable of these 3 in my class but by some other way. I know multiple inheritance is not allowed in java...yet i want to know

How can this be done in Java?

You can't. You either need to create an instance of each class or make the methods static. The latter may not be possible if the method implements an interface method or overrides a method from a super class.
