Overloading a method means to provide the same method name with different signatures, to cater for all the different parameter types that may be passed to a method. Overriding means to provide a new implementation of an existing method, inherited from a base class. Overloaded methods can also be overridden.

overriding means you're changing an already existing method. overloading means you're using the same method name, but you use different parameters in each one.



Overloading the same method name with different number of arguments (and the data types), and perhaps with a different returned data type. The method signatures are different, only the names are the same. Overriding is to change the same method name with different implementation (the method body). The method signature stays the same.


Here are some of the most common differences between both of them. If you are working in Java for more than 1 year, you might be familiar with all of them but any way its good revision: 1) First and major difference between Overloading and Overriding is that former occur during compile time while later occur during runtime. 2) Second difference between Overloading and Overriding is that, you can overload method in same class but you can only override method in sub class. 3) Third difference is that you can overload static method in Java but you can not override static method in Java. In fact when you declare same method in Sub Class it's known as method hiding because it hide super class method instead of overriding it. 4) Overloaded methods are bonded using static binding and Type of reference variable is used, while Overridden method are bonded using dynamic bonding based upon actual Object. 5) Rules of Overloading and Overriding is different in Java. In order to overload a method you need to change its method signature but that is not required for overriding any method in Java.


really there is no difference between constructor overloading and metho overloading


method overriding :method overriding means redefine methods in sub classes they already defined in the Super classes.method overloading : It means methods with the same name but with a different signature exist in one class


no we cannot do both at the same time because overloading requires different arguments and overriding dosenot


Method overloading is when you have multiple methods in a class that have the same name but a different signature. Method overriding is similar to method overloading, with a small difference. In overriding, a method in a parent class is overridden in the child class. The method in the child class will have the same signature as that of the parent class. Since the method in the child class has the same signature & name as the method of its parent class, it is termed as overriding. In situations where you may have to explicitly call the parent class method you can use the "super" keyword and for explicitly calling the current objects method you can use the "this" keyword.


The dictionary definition of polymorphism refers to a principle in biology in which an organism or species can have many different forms or stages. This principle can also be applied to object-oriented programming and languages like the Java language. Subclasses of a class can define their own unique behaviors and yet share some of the same functionality of the parent class.Overriding and Overloading are two techiques to achive polymorphism in Java.Method overloading: When a method in a class having the same method name with different arguments is said to be method overloading. Method overriding : When a method in a class having the same method name with same arguments is said to be method overriding.


Overriding means to provide a new implementation for an existing method. The existing method must be inherited from a base class. Overloading means to provide the same method name, but with a different signature, to cater for the different parameter types the method can accept. Overloaded methods inherited from a base class can also be overridden in a derived class.


Overloading usually signifies having multiple methods inside the same class with different signatures (different return type, arguments) Overriding usually signifies having a method in the child class with exactly the same name and signature as in the parent class.


Overloading is the means by which we can provide two or more different definitions of the same method in the same namespace. Overriding is the means by which a derived class may redefine the meaning of a base class method.


Overloading happens when you have multiple methods in the current class that have the same name but different signature. The scope of method overloading is "Within the current class" Overriding happens when your current class extends another class (the parent class) and provides implementation for a method that is already available in the parent class. The scope of method overriding too is "Within the current class"


Method overriding is similar to method overloading, with a small difference. In overriding, a method in a parent class is overridden in the child class. The method in the child class will have the same signature as that of the parent class. Since the method in the child class has the same signature & name as the method of its parent class, it is termed as overriding. In situations where you may have to explicitly call the parent class method you can use the "super" keyword and for explicitly calling the current objects method you can use the "this" keyword.

Overriding is closely connected to polymorphism. Redefining method is similar to Overriding but you cannot expect those redefined methods to deliver polymorphism.The concept of redefining is used when it involves static methods.


Overriding methods that are in the parent class is to redefine them in the current (child) class in a different way. Like if you're extending a class but you don't like the behavior of one method in that class, you can override that method and write your own code. Overloading a method in the current class is defining another copy of the method with different signature. They call them overloaded methods. This is an example of overloaded methods: myMethod(int i, int b){ .... } myMethod(String s) { ... } myMethod(boolean b) {...} Hope that was clear


Method overriding is when a child class redefines the same method as a parent class, with the same parameters. For example, the standard Java class java.util.LinkedHashSet extends java.util.HashSet. The method add() is overridden in LinkedHashSet. If you have a variable that is of type HashSet, and you call its add() method, it will call the appropriate implementation of add(), based on whether it is a HashSet or a LinkedHashSet. This is called polymorphism. Method overloading is defining several methods in the same class, that accept different numbers and types of parameters. In this case, the actual method called is decided at compile-time, based on the number and types of arguments. For instance, the method System.out.println() is overloaded, so that you can pass ints as well as Strings, and it will call a different version of the method. Overriding is an example of run time polymorphism. The JVM does not know which version of method would be called until the type of reference will be passed to the reference variable. It is also called Dynamic Method Dispatch. Overloading is an example of compile time polymorphism.


FUNCTION OVERLOADING:- when we define two functions with same name,in same class(may be) distinguished by their signatures- resolved at compile time- same method bt different parameters in each of themFUNCTION OVERRIDING:- when we redifine a function which is already defined in parent class- resolved at run time- changing the existing method


Overloading is when you have multiple methods of the same name,same parameter list,same return type in a single class.Among method name, parameter list ,return type any thing must be different.Overriding is when you have methods in a child class that has the same name,same parameter list,same return type as in the parent class.


Overloading - same method name, different method arguments and / or returned type.Example:public class EX {public void M() {}public void M(int k) {}public virtual void V() {}}The method M() above has an overloaded method M(int k)Overriding: override (or overwrite) the implementation of a particular method (same method signature - that is, same return type, same name, and the same arguments and their types).Example:public class DR : EX{public new void M() {} // force to override, a variationpublic override void V() {} // the usual override}The methods M and V of DR override the implementation in EX.


Overriding - same method names with same arguments and same return types associated in a class and its subclass. Example: class CSuper { null print ( string _name) { print "Hello" + _name; } }; class CDerived { null print ( string _name) { print "Hello" + _name + "from Derived"; } }; Overloading - same method name with different arguments, may or may not be same return type written in the same class itself. Example: class CClass { string print( int i); string print(int i, char c); };


Yes. Method Overloading is a form of Polymorphism


The main difference is that: neither of them are related to one another. They have nothing similar between them and are totally different. The only point here is that they are both used in Java which can be stated as a similarity. Inheritance is the feature wherein functionality from one class is available for another class. Polymorphism refers to the feature wherein the same entity exists as multiple items. Ex: method overriding, method overloading etc.


In C++, overloading, overriding, and polymorphism have the following meanings...Overloading is when you create two functions of the same name, but with different argument types, or with a different number of arguments. The compiler generates code for each case. This can be done inside or outside a class. Operators can also be overloaded, as they are (for all practical purposes) functions, but operators can only be overloaded in the context of a class.Overriding is when you derive a child class from a base class, and you replace a method (function) of the base class with a method of the child class using the same type and number of arguments. This is not overloading - it is redeclaration - and the overridden method only applies when dealing with an instance of the child class.Polymorphism is the same as overriding, except that you declare any base method virtual, making all base and derived methods virtual. Virtual, in the context of a class, means to create a table in the static portion (all instances) of the class that point to the specific overridden variants of the methods of the class. This allows you to declare a pointer to the base class, initialize it with the address of an instance of either the base class or any of the child classes, invoke a method of the class, and have the proper binding determined at run-time.
