Java Language Utilizzo di base dei metodi predefiniti

Esempio

/**
 * Interface with default method
 */
public interface Printable {
    default void printString() {
        System.out.println( "default implementation" );
    }
}

/**
 * Class which falls back to default implementation of {@link #printString()}
 */
public class WithDefault
    implements Printable
{
}

/**
 * Custom implementation of {@link #printString()}
 */
public class OverrideDefault
    implements Printable {
    @Override
    public void printString() {
        System.out.println( "overridden implementation" );
    }
}

Le seguenti dichiarazioni

    new WithDefault().printString();
    new OverrideDefault().printString();

Produrrà questa uscita:

default implementation
overridden implementation
