What will happen when you attempt to compile and run the following code
class Base{
public void Base(){
System.out.println("Base");
}
}
public class In extends Base{
public static void main(String argv[]){
In i=new In();
}
}
1) Compile time error Base is a keyword
2) Compilation and no output at runtime
3) Output of Base
4) Runtime error Base has no valid constructor

Here is the answer 2, but why not 3, i thought that In i=new In() will run the de default constuctor int the base class ???

you are correct BUT notice that the Base class didnt define a constructor at all!
the method is:
public VOID Base()
a constructor doesnt return anything.. not even void. so it isnt a constructor just a regular method.
