this() Java : Calling constructor from constructor of same class

We have seen earlier constructor overloading with example. In constructor overloading, multiple constructors exist within the same class. Generally, to call multiple constructors, we create multiple objects; almost one object to call each constructor. Now the question is, Is there anyway to call all the constructors with one object creation?…

Java Constructor Creation with Example

What is difference between super and super() in Java?

super and super() look alike, but they are very different in their functionality (purpose). super with variables and methods: super is used to call super class variables and methods by the subclass object when they are overridden by subclass. super() with constructors: super() is used to call super class constructor…

Java Constructors: Using super()

The magic of super() We have seen earlier, the usage of this() statement where it is used to call in between the constructors belonging to the same class. Here no inheritance is involved. Now in this posting, let us learn how to call a super class constructor from subclass constructor.…
