hi to all
I m having few doubts...
1.In the case of overriding static mehod of super class in sub class
while calling the same method in the subclass with the object of of type superclass.....which method will be called???

2.what is the order of compilation in java programming?

3.
//method in the super class

public void methodA(){};

//method in the sub class

void methodA(){};

Are these two are different methods??


Thanks in advance....please clarrify my doubts.....

1. See Overriding vs. Hiding.

2. I'm not sure what this means. Could you be more specific?

3. If you test this, the compiler will generate an error explaining why you can't do this.
