Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Establishing abstract classes, part of Java Essential Training for Students.
- Moving on to Abstract Classes.…When defining an abstract class…you must include the keyword Abstract…in the class header.…Such as, Public, Abstract, Class, Shape.…The class may or may not include abstract methods.…It's important to understand you cannot instantiate…an object that is of the type of the abstract class.…Although abstract classes cannot be instantiated,…they can have subclasses.…And any abstract methods inside the abstract class…are declared without an implementation…and only the method header.…
So what happens when a class…inherits from an abstract class?…The subclass must provide the implementation…for all the abstract methods that are in the parent class.…If it does not, it must be declared as abstract also.…Abstract classes are similar to interfaces.…Once again, you cannot instantiate an interface,…and an interface may contain a mix of methods…that are with or without code.…When we worked with the geometry class earlier…and we had a shape class, it was an abstract class.…
Lets go back to that.…
