Hi All,

How achieve deep cloning in java? Is it in deep cloning , we have implement the cloneable interface and override clone() method ?then,
what is difference between deep cloning and shallow cloning .when in both cases we have to implement the Cloneable interface and override clone() method?I am really confused with
shallow and deep cloning in java ....

Thanks in advance
