If you desire a particular method to be present in a class and actual methodís implementation be determined by the help of a child class then you must be declaring methods which are present in parent class, as an abstract.
A method to be declard as an abstract, abstract keyword is being used. There is no method body in abstract method but do have a method signature.
Signatures of abstract methods are followed by semicolon and they have no definition:
Java Code:
public abstract class Employee
   private String name;
   private String address;
   private int number;
   public abstract double computePay();
   //Remainder of class definition
It would be resulting into things by declaration of method, as an abstract.

  • It is must for class to get declared as abstract. If abstract method is present in a class then it is also necessary for class to be abstract.
  • Child class shall either declare to be an abstract or shall be overriding the abstract method.
