comment Why do APIs generally consist of interfaces?
But adding a method to an abstract class won't break implementations. Although i am beginning to see your point now. Interfaces are used to ensure that the given methods are implemented.

But how is that applicable in api design? Won't adding any new method to the api interface readily break all implementations?

My question is specifically related to api design. I am aware of the difference between interfaces and abstract class, just asking why interfaces are preferred in api design.

Can't provide exact source but i think if an interface is changed, all its implementations are really broken, unlike an abstract class.
