Look at the following code example:



Output:
SuperClass String arg constructor called
String arg constructor
double arg constructor
int arg constructor

And finally the rule of thumb :
1- Call to super() or this() must be first statement of any constructor.
2- In any constructor there can be either super() of this() not both.

You can see the output of the example how the constructor completion takes place from top to bottom (from super class to sub class);

I think this could be answer to solve the construtor puzzle for you!

Thanks and Regards,
cmbhatt
