> You can't inherit a class from more than one class directly

Although class A extends B,C,D{} is a No-no in Java; you can use Inner Classes to do that. That is inherit class A from a class B;
and then have Inner Classes extend class C and D. In fact this is one of the reasons why Inner classes were thought of by Java designers. for more insights into this go to, look up the second edition of "Thinking in Java",Page 388, the whole section, its beautiful!!
