Best example is HttpServlet

Is This Answer Correct ?    35 Yes 4 No
# 3
yes, we can.To prevent a class from directly creating
objects, better declare them as abstract classes.
Eg: HttpServlet

yes we can have abstract class with out a abstract methods
but when u have a single abstarct method u r class must and
should be declared as Abstarct.

# 5
An abstract class without any abstract methods should be a
rare thing and you should always question your application
design if this case arises. Normally you should refactor to
use a concrete superclass in this scenario.
One specific case where abstract class may justifiably have
no abstract methods is where it partially implements an
interface, with the intention that its subclasses must
complete the interface. To take a slightly contrived
motoring analogy, a Chassis class may partially implement a
Vehicle interface and provide a set of core methods from
which a range of concrete Vehicle types are extended.
Chassis is not a viable implementation of a Vehicle in its
own right, so a concrete Car subclass would have to
implement interface methods for functional wheels, engine
and bodywork.

HI All,

In Java there is very lovely concept related to Abstract
Class, keep this concept always in your mind i.e.
1) A class can be abstract "without any abstract method".
2) But if a single method is abstract you need to declare
your class as abstract this is mandatory but if class is
abstract then its not mandatory to have abstract methods
as mentioned above.
Is This Answer Correct ?    3 Yes 1 No

# 8
yes,please find the below example.

abstract class AbstractClass1 {
public void method1(){
System.out.println("inside method1...");
class AbstractClass2 extends AbstractClass1{
public void method2(){
System.out.println("inside method2...");
public class AbstractDemo {
public static void main(String[] args) {
AbstractClass2 a = new AbstractClass2();
Is This Answer Correct ?    1 Yes 0 No
# 9
I certainly agree with Manish Kushwaha You can have abstract class without any abstract method but if you have a single abstract method you are suppose to make that class abstract
This is what Sun says :
" An abstract class is a class that is declared abstract—it may or may not include abstract methods" (
Is This Answer Correct ?    0 Yes 0 No
# 10
Yes, we can do it undoubtedly, in that case we restrict it
to make an object of it. Example.- HttpServlet
Is This Answer Correct ?    0 Yes 0 No
