    Default Re: Multilevel inheritance of an abstract class

    What do you mean multi-level? A class can of course extend an Abstract class, as long as it is either a) abstract itself or b) implements the abstract methods defined in the parent abstract class (this includes any implemented interfaces not implemented in the abstract class).
