If I have a class like so:

public abstract class MyClass {
   public abstract myMethod();
}

Then when a class extends MyClass, must it implement myMethod?
I thought it did not, that being one of the differences between an abstract class and an interface,
but I am getting a compile saying the myMethod must be implemented.
