Java - Interview Questions and Answers

 Q1. If everything is an object , Cant we declare every object as

Object obj = new String();
Core Java2016-12-02 14:45:05

Ans. Yes, we can do that. Compiler wont complain. But using object reference we can only access methods which have been defined for object class i.e clone(), equals(), hashCode(), toString() etc.

We cannot access methods defined in String class or in any class in hierarchy between String and Object.

For example - we cannot do obj.append("abc") as it will now give compile time error.
