Consider this example.



The output is



Notice that print() is a class method, and printName() is an instance method.

When you call the method print() with a Test11 reference to a Test10 object, it calls the static method print() in Test11.

When you call the method printName() with a Test11 reference to a Test10 object, it calls the overridden printName() method in Test10.
