Fundamentals : LUSENET : Java Programming : One Thread

Hello! We are new to Java Programming and have some problems with basic concepts. We have seen many books+tutorials+articles but still have confusions. When we inherit a class A from class B. What does happen? {1}. Do all members of B are inherited to A. or they get just reference. (2). When we creates an object of Class A, an object of Class B is also created (True/False). why? (3). What is Dynamic Method Dispatch ? We have stuied (Java2 the Complete reference of Herbert Shield), (Thinking in Java) (Begining Java2) and others too? Can any one provide some examples illustrating these concepts. Thanks

Regards Anis

when class A inherits class from class B, every thing except private members & constructors get inherited to child class. definitely when we create an object of class A object of super classs i.e class b will first gets created. when we call a method using a reference of super class, the overridden method in child class gets called, this is dynamic method dispatch
