Question: 2

What is static in java?

Static means one per class, not one for each object no matter how many instance of a class might exist. This means that you can use them without creating an instance of a class.

Static methods are implicitly final, because overriding is done based on the type of the object and static methods are attached to a class, not an object.

A static method in a superclass can be shadowed by another static method in a sub class, as long as the original method was not declared final.

However, you can’t override a static method with a non static method. In other words, you can’t change a static method into an instance method of a subclass.

Question: 3

What is abstract class?

A abstract class must be extended/sub classed (to be useful). It serves as a template.

A class that is abstract may not be instantiated, abstract class may contain static data.

Any class with an abstract method is automatically abstract itself and must be declared as such.

A class may be declared abstract even if it has no abstract methods. This prevents it from being instantiated.
