Hi,

I'm writing some Java classes and I would like to have the following structure:

abstract class submittedForm

abstract class submittedFormType extends submittedForms

class formA extends submittedFormType

Question:

A: Is this a valid way to design my code with an abstract class extending an abstract class?

B: If I declare an abstract method in submittedForm, can I wait to implement that method in formA, or do I also need to reference that abstract method in the submittedFormType abstract class as well?

Thanksin advance,
Courtenay

A) valid but may be error prone.
B) not to be repeated in the extended class but implemented in the final class.
