Also question is, how do interfaces work in Java?
Java uses Interface to implement multiple inheritance. A Java class can implement multiple Java Interfaces. All methods in an interface are implicitly public and abstract. To use an interface in your class, append the keyword "implements" after your class name followed by the interface name.
Subsequently, question is, what is meant by interface in Java? An interface in java is a blueprint of a class. It has static constants and abstract methods. The interface in Java is a mechanism to achieve abstraction. There can be only abstract methods in the Java interface, not method body. It is used to achieve abstraction and multiple inheritance in Java.
In respect to this, why interfaces are used in Java?
It is used to achieve total abstraction. Since java does not support multiple inheritance in case of class, but by using interface it can achieve multiple inheritance . It is also used to achieve loose coupling.
Can an interface extend more than one interface in Java?
An interface cannot contain instance fields. The only fields that can appear in an interface must be declared both static and final. An interface is not extended by a class; it is implemented by a class. An interface can extend multiple interfaces.
