Consider the following entity class hierarchy:

public abstract class Account{ }
public class CheckingAccount extends Account{ }
public class SavingsAccount extends Account{ }

Assuming that JOINED is used as Inheritance strategy, and all the three classes are Entity classes, which of the following is correct?

1. Two tables, one for SavingsAccount and one for CheckingAcount will be used.
2. JOINED is an invalid strategy for this scenerio.
3. Three tables, one for each class, will be used.
4. Only one table will be used.

Should the correct answer be 1 nstead of 3. Enthuware says 3 is correct?
This will take every ounce of my mental strength! All for a tiny ad:
