    Default Strict Polymorphism

    hi everyone
    Can't find the answer on net.

    I just want to ask about a kind inheritance
    Let say I have an interface MachineCode.

    I also have different classes, Binary, Hex and Octal that implements MachineCode

    Question:
    How can I prevent java to create an Object like this:
    Binary bin = new Binary();
    Hex hex = new Hex();
    Octal octal = new Octal();
    those declaration above must be compile error,

    I want to create Objects of Binary, Hex, and Octal this way:
    MachineCode bin = new Binary();
    MachineCode hex = new Hex();
    MachineCode octal = new Octal();

    I sure that this is possible, but I don't know how.
    Sorry can't find answer on net, thank you
