Why do you use an interface for implementing methods Isn't it just extra work?

== == By creating an interface, the programmer creates a method to handle objects that implement it in a generic way. An example of this would be the Runnable interface in Java. If the programmer is given a Runnable object, they do not need to know what that object really is to be able to call the run method. Ex.

public void startThreads(ArrayList threads){ for(Runnable r : threads) (new Thread(r)).start();

} The objects in the ArrayList threads may be anything at all, but because they all implement the Runnable interface, it is possible to execute their run method generically, in this case encapsulating it in a Thread object and starting that Thread.

Answer:

In Java, it will not support a concept like "subclass having more than one superclass" ex: class subclass extends superclass1,superclass2 so, to implement this concept , Java introduced a new methodology called "interface", interface is also a class , but it has only function declarations having no function definitions. thereby, we can inherit more than one interfaces through "implements" key word. For an interface we cont declare an object,but, we have an alternative ,through assigning an object of a class which implements that interface. ex: interfacename iobj; subclass sobj=new subclass(); iobj=sobj; iobj.funame1(); iobj.funame2(); iobj.funame3(); note: these three funames are the member functions of the above interface, and subclass has to give the definition for them, dynamic binding...right! Apart from these already three declared functions, we don't give the reference to the iobj, ok! the other explanation for implements is, giving definition for a member function, today or in future ,which is declared in past.

Where can you view French Impressionist paintings?

Across the Seine from The Louvre is the Musee d'Orsay. Formerly a train station during the early part of the 20th century, the Orsay was converted into a museum in 1986, and the bulk of its collections consist of pieces created between 1850 and 1914. On the fifth floor of the museum are works representing the greatest names in Impressionism including Monet, Manet, Degas, Van Gogh, and Renoir among others. Impressionism began in France in the late 1800s and, although critics came down heavily on early Impressionists (the term itself was an insult coined by a critic in response to one of Monet's paintings), some of the most popular and well recognized pieces of art are creations from this movement. Aside from some of the greatest works of Impressionism , about 2 million visitors per year also view the Orsay's other collections representing photography, modernism, decorative arts, and sculpture. In total, over 78,000 works are housed at the Orsay. The museum is open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. most days. On Thursdays, the museum doors do not close until 9:45 p.m. Entrance fees are approximately $10 American and are included in the Paris Museum Pass. Admission is free to everyone the first Sunday of every month. The Art Institute of Chicago has an excellent and extensive collection of Impressionist and Post Impressionist art. They began collecting it before it became popular. The LA County Museum of Modern Art also has a nice collection of Impressionist art, as does MoMA in New York.

What was Renoir's first painting?

We cannot know. At some point in the 1860s he was dissatisfied with his earlier works and destroyed most of them.
Renoir's father was called Leonard Renoir, and was a 'modest artisan' (a tailor) in Limoges who struggled to find stable work. Leonard moved the Renoir family to Paris when Pierre-Auguste was four years old...I know little about his mother.
