If you don't implement all of them, your class becomes abstract and you wont be able to create a complete instance

Yes, although for some java interfaces there are adapters, from which you can extend. These implement the interface in a default way. For example:

class WListener extends WindowsAdapter implements WindowListener

Notice that this requires an adapter class. Other solution is as sketch by hoomanv.
