how come after the implicit call to super() in X's constructor it busts out of the constructor to create Y() first before finishing up its own work?

Initialization:


In Java , when an object is created, initialization is done in this order:

  • Set fields to default initial values (0, false, null)
  • Call the constructor for the object (but don't execute the body of the constructor yet)
  • Invoke the constructor of the superclass
  • Initialize fields using initializers and initialization blocks
  • Execute the body of the constructor
