Can we override a final private method???


class Base
{
final private void amethod(int iBase)
{
System.out.println("Base.amethod");
}
}



class Over extends Base
{
public static void main(String argv[])
{
Over o = new Over();
Base b = new Over();
int iBase=0;
o.amethod(iBase);
}

public void amethod(int iOver)
{
System.out.println("Over.amethod");
}
}

Since amethod is a private method of Base class, so no subclass can inherit it.Hence, any subclass of Base can have its own amethod.

private method is not inherited... so it doesn't matter wheter it's final. maybe you should chnage your private method to public ... to get more aproriate error about overriding final method

I feel I didnt explain properly. So writing again.
Any private method cannot be inherited. So, there is no question of overridding. Second thing is, since a subclass cannot inherit private method i.e amethod, it can always redefine amethod.

Hi,

private methods wont be visible out side the class definition where it is decalred. So in case of private method, there is no concept of method overriding.
when you called method on a reference , it will chk the method in the object which is assigned to the reference. so that method will be called.

private methods are not inherited by subclasses and, therefore, cannot be overridden (i.e., all private methods are implicitly final).
