Hi Ranchers,
I have one doubt regarding with Polymorphism.
What is PolyMorphisn?
What is Compile time polymorphism and Runtime PolyMorphisn?

Polymorphism is ability to process objects differently based on the data or state.Its mostly about redefining the methods.

Compile time polymorphism in JAVA deals with the overloaded methods and instance variable binding.
Runtime polymorphism deals with the overridden methods.
