    An interface can extend other interface but cannot implement any interface. This makes sense because interface cannot have any implementation. An interface can only contain abstract methods that are implemented by the class implementing that interface.


    Lets do this with an example.

    Create a package named myinterfaces. Using conventions, package name should be in small case. Now create an interface named InterfaceA with 2 methods.

    Java Code:
    package myinterfaces;
    ...

    One way is to simply try to write one interface with all the abstract methods. This is not at all flexible as all of these interfaces might be used in different scenarios. So its better to keep each as a separate interface. ...
