Can static methods be overridden in the deriving class ?
posted 11 years ago
Static methotds cannot be overridden.
A subclass cannot override methods that are declared static in the superclass. In other words, a subclass cannot override a class method. A subclass can hide a static method in the superclass by declaring a static method in the subclass with the same signature as the static method in the superclass.
