I have run the following code (JunkFirst.java)in eclipse to prove that only methods can be overriden. It is throwing runtime exception "stackoverflow". How do I correct the error?

You have an infinite recursion. In your definition of the class Child, you have an instantiation of that class. That means that any time you try to instantiate a new Child, that instance will instantiate a new Child, and then that instance will instantiate a new Child, and so and so on until the stack runs out of space.
