I am just a bigginer,so maybe my question is a little stupid.
Dose overload only happen in one class,or just like override,one child class can overload it's parent class's method?

You overload a method for the same type of object. If B extends A, then B is a type of A. So you can overload a method in B that exists in A, assuming the method is not private.
