Java Anonymous inner class.

Anonymous inner class.

  • Is a class, which have no name and the class implementation is combined with an object instantiation of the class.
  • Can be performed through implementing an interface or here as extending a class.
    Anonymous inner class example:
    public class AnonymousCar {   
      String _color;
      AnonymousCar(String col){
      Object obj = new Object() {          //  Anonymous inner class
        public String toString() {
          return "My color is "+_color+"!";
      public static void main(String[] args) {
        AnonymousCar myCar= new AnonymousCar("blue") ;      
        // instantiated object of class Anonymouscar
    The result of this is:
    My color is blue!
