1) Multiple inheritances does complicate the design and creates problem during casting, constructor chaining etc thus the reasons for omitting multiple inheritance from the Java language mostly stems from the "simple, object oriented, and familiar" goal.
2) Ambiguity around Diamond problem
Instead, Java's designers chose to allow multiple interface inheritance through the use of interfaces, an idea borrowed from Objective C's protocols. Multiple interface inheritance allows an object to inherit many different method signatures with the caveat that the inheriting object must implement those inherited methods.
It is also interesting to note C# also doesnt allow for multiple inheritance of classes and rather multiple interface inheritance.
I guess this is also the reason why Java best practice it to make every class implement an interface, thus you can implement your multiple classes by implementing their interfaces on the new class.
but don't forget, by implementing interfaces you don't really inherit anything, so Java doesn't allow multiple (interface) inheritance through interfaces, it simply allows you to simulate multiple inheritance.
Help! I want to create a java program that finds the highest even integer among the values entered by the user. Stop asking values when a value less than 1 have been entered. If no even integer is entered, display "No Even Integer"
Hi, as I was told that my code doesn’t scale well at all, I thought perhaps I’d try to get a better understanding of interfaces/abstract classes and classes and the relationship between them.
I don’t want at this stage work on a big separate project as I've already got plenty ...
