This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
When a method is invoked (§15.12), the number of actual arguments (and any explicit type arguments) and the compile-time types of the arguments are used, at compile time, to determine the signature of the method that will be invoked (§15.12.2). If the method that is to be invoked is an instance method, the
actual method to be invoked will be determined at run-time, using dynamic method lookup (§15.12.4).
Can someone please explain these phrases...
01. the number of actual arguments (and any explicit type arguments)
what does it mean by "actual arguments" ?
02. If the method that is to be invoked is an instance method
Does it mean this by "instance method" , == method which is not static, method which belongs to object
