Protected in Interfaces
In Java why cant I have protected methods in an interface?
Since according to Java specifications
protected access (denoted by the keyword protected) – a field or method accessible to any type in the same package, and to subclasses in any package.
If at all I have to use the interface, I am going to implement it and override the methods.
So if I am going to implement where the class has access to those methods, since method accessible to in any package. So whats the harm in declaring the method as protected in Interface ?
