Java implements | Interface | keyword | Example code

Java Implements keyword is for implementing an interface. This keyword comes to solve Multiple Inheritance problems in java. If you want a inherit many classes by a single one, this is not possible with extends the class.  You need to define an Interface and then use Java Implements to inherit multiple Interface properties.

Java implements Interface keyword Example

In this tutorial we will learn about Java implements Interface with examples. But before the start, you must have basic knowledge about Interface, class, and Inheritance. Here is a link to it.

Implements: You are implementing a contract. The class implementing the interface “has a” capability.


Here is the simple syntax of how to use implements.

Java implements an example

Here is an example of how java implements the interface. In the code, we created a one interface Add and class Hello inherit method by using implements.

Multiplication of number is 12

Question: Can Java implements class?

Answer: no, Java can’t implement class they can extend the class.
