This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
This has little to do with Java programming, but...
Let's see some examples of the use of the words.
Present --------- The class Lion inherits from the super class Feline. The super class Feline has a method named hunt(). If you want to reimplement that behavior in the class Lion, you have to override the method hunt().
Present Progressive -------------------- While you are overriding the method hunt() in the Lion class be careful to comply with the contract stated in the super class method you are overriding.
Perfect Present ---------------- Once the method has been overridden run some tests to check that it does not break compatibility with other classes in the hierarchy.
I hope this helps. [ July 21, 2006: Message edited by: Edwin Dalorzo ]
