    Default question about abstract methods

    I'm new in java and OOP, can you help me?
    I have this question
    Do Abstract methods inherited automatically by any extending class? and if they do, even when I declare them as private?

    thanks in advance

    abstract methods are implemented by the extending class. i think your not understanding abstract methods. they basically define a contract between the parent and children object. if i declare a method in the parent class as abstract, i define the signature of that method. all subclasses will be required to implement the abstract method or be defined as an abstract class (since it doesn't implement the abstract method).
