Anonymous class

In this example we shall show you how to use an anonymous class. To use an anonymous class we are using an interface and override its method when creating a new object, as described in the steps below:

  • We create a new interface AnonClass with a void call() method.
  • We create a new instance of AnonClass, where we override its call() method to print a message.
  • Then we call the call() method of the object created.
  • The result is that the overriden method is used,

as described in the code snippet below.  

package com.javacodegeeks.snippets.core;

public class AnonymousClass {

    public static void main(String[] args) {

  AnonClass b = new AnonClass() {


public void call() {

    System.out.println("You hit it!");



    interface AnonClass {

  void call();


You hit it!

This was an example of how to use an anonymous class in Java.
