2:what is advantage of interface over abstract
What's the difference between an interface and abstract class?
1. Interface comes in Inheritance chain while Abstract not
2. One class can inherit muliple interface but it can't
inerit mulitple abstract class
3. Abstract class can have concert method but interface
4.An abstract class can contain fields, constructors, or
destructors and implement properties. An interface can not
contain fields, constructors, or destructors and it has
only the property's signature but no implementation.
5.Abstract classes are faster than interfaces.
Hope it will help ..
In which scenario we will use interface and an abstract class.
Here are some recommendations to help you to decide whether to use an interface or an abstract class to provide polymorphism for your components.
<>If you anticipate creating multiple versions of your component, create an abstract class. Abstract classes provide a simple and easy way to version your components. By updating the base class, all inheriting classes are automatically updated with the change. Interfaces, on the other hand, cannot be changed once created. If a new version of an interface is required, you must create a whole new interface.
<> If the functionality you are creating will be useful across a wide range of disparate objects, use an interface. Abstract classes should be used primarily for objects that are closely related, whereas interfaces are best suited for providing common functionality to unrelated classes.
<> If you are designing small, concise bits of functionality, use interfaces. If you are designing large functional units, use an abstract class.
<> If you want to provide common, implemented functionality among all implementations of your component, use an abstract class. Abstract classes allow you to partially implement your class, whereas interfaces contain no implementation for any members
