In other words, finalize() is an ordinary overridable method. So, if the subclass has a version of finalize(), then the superclass version will only be called if the subclass version calls super.finalize(). Normally, it should do so.
Of course, discussion of finalize() is of little more than academic interest, as there are very few worthwhile uses of finalisation.
