Thus, it is possible to define an anonymous class that extends a class whose constructor requires parameters, and to pass those parameters to the superclassconstructor when the anonymous class is instantiated.

The parentheses following interfaceName in the second expression in Figure 1 must always be empty. In this case, the superclass is always Object , which never expects constructor parameters.

Discussion and sample code

The paragraphs that follow will explain a program named InnerClasses08 . This program is designed specifically to illustrate anonymous classes, and to compareanonymous classes with local classes.

I will discuss the program in fragments. A complete listing of the program is provided in Listing 10 .

When the program is executed, it produces the GUI shown in Figure 2 . I will refer back to this image during the discussion of the program.

Class file names

This program consists of a total of six classes:

  • Two top-level classes
    • InnerClasses08.class
    • GUI.class
  • One local class
    • GUI$1$BaldButton.class
  • Three anonymous classes
    • GUI$1.class
    • GUI$2.class
    • GUI$3.class

When compiled, the program produces the class files shown in Figure 3 .

(As you can see, the anonymous classes are not truly anonymous, since the files that represent them must have names. Generally, however, theestablishment of the individual names is beyond the control of the programmer, and the names are not known to the program in a way that makesit possible to refer to them by name.)

Program structure and behavior

This program is designed to illustrate the use of local classes and anonymous classes in a very practical way. Itillustrates one implementation of a local class and three different implementations of anonymous classes. The program compares the local class withan anonymous class designed to accomplish the same purpose. The program also illustrates the use of instance initializers as an alternative toconstructors.

A local class

The program defines and uses a local class to instantiate an object to handle mouse clicked events on a button with low-level event handling. This class uses a constructor to enable mouse events on a newextended Button class. It also uses a constructor to display the name of the class file.

Three anonymous classes

An anonymous class to compare with the local class

The program also defines and uses an anonymous class to instantiate an object tohandle mouse clicked events on a button with low-level event handling.

This class uses an instance initializer to enable mouse events on a new extended Button class. It also uses an instance initializer to display the name of the class file.

This class and the local class described above provide a direct comparison between the use of local classes and anonymous classes toserve the same purpose.

An anonymous class that implements an interface

The program illustrates the use of an anonymous class that implements the MouseListener interface, to instantiate an object to handle mouse clicked events using the source-listener event model (sometimes referred to as the delegation event model or the JavaBeans event model). The anonymous class uses an instance initializer to display the name of the class file.

Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world

silver nanoparticles could handle the job?

this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
Prasenjit Reply
At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
