Consider the following class definition:
public class Parent{
final void zzz(){}
Which of the following methods may appear in a subclass
of Parent, when the subclass is in a different package
from Parent? choose all correct options.
A) void zzz(){}
B) void zzz(int j){}
c) final void zzz(float f){}
D) public final void zzz(double d){}
The Answer was given as B,C,D
I wonder, as void zzz() in Parent can not be seen
in subclass, why subclass can not have another void zzz()?
what about take away final acess modifier in Parent class?
Anyone could explain?

Have you tried this Mock Exam Testing Engine yet?<br /><a href="" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"></a>

The final keyword in a method declaration indicates to the compiler that the method cannot be overridden by
subclasses.Hence choice A is incorrect.
If you take away the final access modifier from the method i think all A,B,C,D would be valid choices.

I think A is a correct answer - I tried this out and it will compile.
Nan's point is valid - the method has 'default' access and so will not be visible to subclasses in a different package. So declaring a method with the same signature in the subclass should be OK - it does not actually override the parent's method, since this will not have been inherited.

This question from R&H book( our Bible!). There are three Bouns Mock tests and one final test. The question is from Bonus 1 q49.

I have run the following code, it print out
"in B zzz", that means given answer is wrong!
Moderator, could you move this thread to Mock Exam errata forum please.
import pack1.*;
public class B extends A{
void zzz(){System.out.println("in B void zzz");}
public static void main(String[] args){
A a = new B();
B b = new B();
A a1 = new A();
// a.zzz(); compile error
// a1.zzz(); compile error

//package pack1;
package pack1;
class A{
final void zzz(){System.out.println("in A void zzz"); }
