Java Program to Illustrate Use of Final Keyword

This is a Java Program to Illustrate Use of Final Keyword.

We have declared the length and breadth variable as final and hence its value cannot be changed now. We have made the area and rect method final so now these methods cannot be overrided. Also we have made the class containing main method as final so now this class cannot be inherited.

Here is the source code of the Java Program to Illustrate Use of Final Keyword. The Java program is successfully compiled and run on a Windows system. The program output is also shown below.

  1. import java.util.Scanner;
  2. class Figure
  3. {
  4.     final int length = 5;
  5.     final int bredth = 4;
  6.     final void area()
  7.     {
  8.         int a = length * bredth;
  9.         System.out.println("Area:"+a);
  10.     }
  11. }
  12. class Rectangle extends Figure
  13. {
  14.     final void rect()
  15.     {
  16.         System.out.println("This is rectangle");
  17.     }
  18. }
  19. final public class Final_Use extends Rectangle
  20. {
  21.     public static void main(String[] args) 
  22.     {
  23.         Final_Use obj = new Final_Use();
  24.         obj.rect();
  25.         obj.area();
  26.     }
  27. }
