not implementing all of the methods of interface. is it possible?

The only way around this is to declare your class as abstract and leave it to a subclass to implement the missing methods. But ultimately, someone in the chain has to implement it to meet the interface contract. If you truly do not need a particular method, you can implement it and then either return or throw some variety of NotImplementedException, whichever is more appropriate in your case.

The Interface could also specify some methods as ‘default’ and provide the corresponding method implementation within the Interface definition ( These ‘default’ methods need not be mentioned while implementing the Interface.
