In short, "virtual function" is the C++ term for a polymorphic function/method. In Java, all (non-static) methods are polymorphic - there is no way to declare a "non-virtual function". [ July 11, 2002: Message edited by: Ilja Preuss ]

Hi sandeep, The virtual modifier signals the compiler that this member function is expected to be overridden by a derived class. See the sample code below:
The member function invoked depends on the runtime type of the object being referenced by the pointer. Note this polymorphic behavior only applies to pointers and references.
