I took this example from the study guide titled "java 6 and j2ee 1.5 Black Book"



The book states that since the method signatures are identical, the compiler fails to bind the methods to their definitions, and it is done at run time. But the problem is that these methods are declared static. To the best of my knowledge static methods are bound at compile time. Which one is right?

Compile time in my opinion.
