Java / Inheritance
Difference between method overriding and overloading in Java.
Method overloading deals with the notion of having two or more methods in the same class with the same name but different arguments. Method overriding means having two methods with the same arguments, but different implementations. One of them would exist in the parent class, while another will be in the derived, or child class.
Calls to overloaded methods are realized at compile time. Thats why it is static. Calls to overridden methods are realized at run-time, based on the type on which the method is invoked.
