Hi, You can only hide static methods,but not override them.A sub class cannot override a "class" method.A sub class can hide a static method in super class by declaring a static method in the subclass with the same signature as the static mathod in the super class. At compilation time, the compiler matches the static method to the class referenced at compile time. It does not match it to the class used at runtime. Chandrasekhar S.
