I'm new to java, and I have a question. If I have the following:

I'm reading this book and i'm getting confused. Which is the overridding method(s) and overloading method(s), and what is the difference. How is this different from an overloaded constructer?

Thank you,
Moonjuice

I'm confused by your diagram. This is similar to something described in Thinking in Java under the topic, Is-a vs. is-like-a relationships. Is this the example that you're working from? Or is there a more detailed version?
