Nothing to do with JSP, so I'm moving this along to the Java in General(beginner) forum.

Welcome to JavaRanch, baban kakde!

Concerning variable hiding in Java, I suggest taking a look at the following sections of the Java Language Specification, Second Edition:
  • Example: Hiding of Class Variables
  • Example: Hiding of Instance Variables
  • 8.4.6 Inheritance, Overriding, and Hiding
  • Example: Overloading, Overriding, and Hiding
  • Example: Invocation of Hidden Class Methods
  • Example: Invocation of Hidden Class Methods

    I agree. Here's the link:
