What is a Java subclass E-mail
User Rating: / 132
PoorBest 

A Java subclass is a class which inherits a method or methods from a Java superclass.

A Java class may be either a subclass, a superclass, both, or neither!

The Cat class in the following example is the subclass and the Animal class is the superclass.

public class Animal {

    public static void hide() {
        System.out.println("The hide method in Animal.");
    }

    public void override() {
        System.out.println("The override method in Animal.");
    }
}

public class Cat extends Animal {

    public static void hide() {
        System.out.println("The hide method in Cat.");
    }

    public void override() {
        System.out.println("The override method in Cat.");
    }

    public static void main(String[] args) {
        Cat myCat = new Cat();
        Animal myAnimal = (Animal)myCat;
        myAnimal.hide();
        myAnimal.override();
    }
}
