Hi

I posted this mistakenly at a wrong forum. Hope to get some help this time. Learning through HFSJ by K&B. Following is my query from the same.

The jsp standard action:

Following are my 2 beans:

But i notice that the reference variable personBean which is of the superclass type is able to access (and set) the subclass bean functions like setEmpId() which are not overridden.

Thanks
