Multiple Inheritance in java

Java is not allowing inheritance from multiple classes (still it allows inheritance from multiple interfaces.), I know it is very much inline with classic diamond problem. But my questions is why java is not allowing multiple inheritance like C++ when there is no ambiguity (and hence no chances of diamond problem) while inheriting from multiple base class ?


It was a design decision of Java. You'll never get it, so don't worry too much about it. Although MI might help you make Mixins, that's the only good MI will ever do you.
