I am stuck in a point about hierarchy, take a look into the following code.




Now my question is i have the spr a reference of type SuperClass and is instantiated through the constructor of SubClass. Now when i call the getter method of the property which is common in both the classes i am getting the value of the property in sub class, how is a super class reference is able to view the method in the sub class? What is the point i am missing here.

This is a feature of OOP called method-overriding. Search for the term on Java-Ranch (or outside), you'll get plenty of references. Tell us if you still have a doubt.
