After running following code,I am getting result as given below:
Here from String!!null
Why does it call String instead of Object?When I passed null directly through the method.

Code is given below:
import java.util.*;
class OverLoadinObject
void aMethod1(Object obj)
System.out.println("Here from object!!"+obj);}

void aMethod1(String str)
System.out.println("Here from String!!"+str );
public static void main(String[] args)
OverLoadinObject objTestOverLoadinObject = new OverLoadinObject();

When I passed null like following way ,the Object method gets called.
Object obj = null;
Here from object!!null
Here it is being called Object overloaded method,why does it behave like this? :roll:
