'a1' or '21' are not legal values in Java. If you are passing a char value, there should be only one character, like 'a' or 'b'.
If you are passing an int value, you should not use single quotes for that. Try using new b(21);

You can't put two characters inside of single quotes. I'm not sure why you are passing your constructor a char value when it accepts an int, but if you do want to do it, then try new b('1'); or new b('2');...

Or in other words, these are syntax errors... not errors related to overloading constructors.
