    Default multiple inheritance in java

    Hi All,
    I have read in books and also every where that each class in java is subclass of java.lang.Object. Then how it's able to extend any other class. becuase what I know that multiple inheritance is not allowed in java

    Default

    It is done implicitly. That means you still have one more chance to do it explicitly :)

    Default

    An example of multiple inheritance is
    Java Code:
    public class Test extends Foo, Bar // illegal! 
    {...}
    Further, implicitly means that the compiler makes the extension for you, in this case.

    So technically, it would look like this
    Java Code:
    public class Foo extends Object 
    {...}
    
    public class Bar extends Foo 
    {...}
