Initialization with inheritance

//: Beetle.java
// The full process of initialization.
 
class Insect {
  int i = 9;
  int j;
  Insect() {
    prt("i = " + i + ", j = " + j);
    j = 39;
  }
  static int x1 = 
    prt("static Insect.x1 initialized");
  static int prt(String s) {
    System.out.println(s);
    return 47;
  }
}
 
public class Beetle extends Insect {
  int k = prt("Beetle.k initialized");
  Beetle() {
    prt("k = " + k);
    prt("j = " + j);
  }
  static int x2 =
    prt("static Beetle.x2 initialized");
  static int prt(String s) {
    System.out.println(s);
    return 63;
  }
  public static void main(String[] args) {
    prt("Beetle constructor");
    Beetle b = new Beetle();
  }
} ///:~ 

The output for this program is:

static Insect.x initialized
static Beetle.x initialized
Beetle constructor
i = 9, j = 0
Beetle.k initialized
k = 63
j = 39

Top White Papers and Webcasts

  • Today's agile organizations pose operations teams with a tremendous challenge: to deploy new releases to production immediately after development and testing is completed. To ensure that applications are deployed successfully, an automatic and transparent process is required. We refer to this process as Zero Touch Deployment™. This white paper reviews two approaches to Zero Touch Deployment--a script-based solution and a release automation platform. The article discusses how each can solve the key …

  • On-demand Event Event Date: October 29, 2014 It's well understood how critical version control is for code. However, its importance to DevOps isn't always recognized.
