Overloading Methods

Overloading Methods

Hi Guys ,
One Question it is possible to pass a polymorphic argument to a overloaded method
or create an overloaded method to accept a polymorphic argument ?
Thanks Nixx123

RE: Overloading Methods

Can you provide an example of what you need? I guess generics is the solution for you, but I'm not sure.


RE: Overloading Methods

I am not looking for a solution as such , i merely wanted to understand if it is possible or not ,
I am Studying Java 6/7 at the moment .The book from which i am learning from does not explicitly state in the section on polymorphism that a polymorphic argument can be used in an overloaded method

RE: Overloading Methods

Take a look at generics then.
