Having a little trouble understanding Anonymous Inner classes
Here s the code that I have.I know that WindowAdapter class is an Abstract class, then what does the line "new WindowAdapter()" means? Are we creating an object of WindowAdapter class which is an abstract class.Confused!!!
Class Myframe extends Frame
public static void main(String args)
Myframe f=new Myframe();
public void windowClosing(WindowEvent e)
It is creating an object of an anonymous class which extends
WindowAdapter class without writing the code to subclass it.
From the Java Tutorials:
Anonymous classes enable you to make your code more concise. They enable you to declare and instantiate a class at the same time. They are like local classes except that they do not have a name.
This is a shortcut to create an object of a subclass without explicitly writing a separate class which extends
WindowAdapter.The point is that you need the object from inside the code of a method so you never refer to them elsewhere, so you don't need to create a separate class for them.
