Can constructor be extended?
Subsequently, one may also ask, can we extend constructor?
a constructor cannot be overridden. a constructor cannot be called with an object but method can be called. To call a constructor, an object must be created. in case of methods, we say, the "subclass method can call super class method".
Beside above, can we inherit a constructor? Constructors are not members of classes and only members are inherited. You cannot inherit a constructor. That is, you cannot create a instance of a subclass using a constructor of one of it's superclasses.
Similarly, it is asked, why constructor is not overridden?
Constructor Overriding is never possible in Java. This is because, Constructor looks like a method but name should be as class name and no return value. Overriding means what we have declared in Super class, that exactly we have to declare in Sub class it is called Overriding.
Can we call subclass constructor from superclass constructor?
5 Answers. A constructor from a subclass can call constructors from the superclass, but they're not inherited as such. because there's no Sub(int) constructor. It may be helpful to think of constructors as uninherited static methods with an implicit parameter of the object being initialized.
