difference between INTERFACE and ABSTRACT INTERFAC,
November 15, 2007 at 9:30 AM

I am re-learning java after a long time.

AFAIK, interfaces are all abstract. They are generally declared as:

<access specifier> interface <InterfaceName> {
// abstract methods
}

So what is this new thing called "abstract interface" ?? I see this in quite a few places these days:

<access specifier> abstract interface <InterfaceName> {
// abstract methods
}

What good is this "abstract" doing here?

TIA
