Hi Friens

Class 'C' extends class 'B' which extends class 'A'.

all of these 3 classes have a method called 'test()' with same implementation.

if i need to call test() in class'A' from class'C', how i should call?

pls clarify this

Not possible to call a method in the superclass of the superclass.

The only way to achieve this effect is to add a method to the superclass that calls its superclass. Of course, you can only do that if you have access to the code of the superclass.

class A{
public test(){
S.O.P.( //inside A )
}
}
class B extends A{
public test(){
S.O.P.( //inside B )
}
public void callTopTest(){
super.test();
}
}

class C extends B{
public test(){
}
public void callUpTest(){
super.callTopTest();
}
public static void main(String arg[]){
new C().callUpTest();
}
}



//output : inside A
