The 'Complete Java 2 Certification Study Guide' states that 'A static method may not be overriden to be non-static.' This implies that it can only be overridden by a static method. However, according to a mock exam, the statement 'Static methods can be overridden by static methods only' is said to be false. Could someone please clarify. Thanks very much.
so after having a look at the answers that John provided the link to, it seems that not only can a static method NOT be overridden to be a non-static method, a static method can NOT be overridden AT ALL. ...a static method can only be hidden.
