hello,
i have doubt in static methods, as static method can't be overriden,how is it possible to access the behaviour of super class in base class.i have code
class Animal
{
static void dostuff(){
System.out.println("aaaaaa");
}
}

class Dog extends Animal
{
public static void main(String[] args){
//Animal a=new Animal();
//a.dostuff();
//Animal a1=new Dog();
//a1.dostuff();
Dog d=new Dog();
d.dostuff();
}
}

though i now static methods are not overriden, as they method and can be accessed in base class through hidding ,but here i not used the static method then i able to access it .if i am wrong please guide me.

sub-class(within the same package) can access all the members of super class whether static/non-static unless marked private.
