    this is a question asked in an interview..Now i got the answer.
    Here it is:We have the concept of "Anonymous Class" in java i.e a class without a name or we can declare and instantiate a class at the same time.They are like local classes except that they do not have name.

    Now, Anonymous function is a function which is declared and called but without a name. In most of the programming languages,anonymous function have been used with the keyword lambda and that is why they are also known as lambda functions.
    Programming languages that support anonymous functions are: LISP,JavaScript,Ruby,etc.
    Java does not contain this feature.However,Java8 is planning to contain this feature.
    And we can call the anonymous function by passing it into a variable and call it.
