class A{
void test(){ }
static void test() { }
are we overloading test() here?
to be more precise
can we overload a function by changing the modifier?

No. This is not overloading. Overloading is when parameter types or sequence is differet.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
subject: overloading
