I observed in SCJP 6 by kathy sierra and bert bates, that constructors will not be inherited from super class.

Could you please clarify ?

constructors are NOT inherited in subclass....

Then how the super class constructor will be executed when we create the object for sub class.

There is implicit call to base class constructor from each derived class constructor . Using keyword super() it calls base class constructor . "super();" is first statement of every derived class constructor either we provide explicitly or it is provided by JVM implicitly.

class A
A( ) { }

class B extends A
{ }

Can any one tell me that B's constructor is public or not?

If we are not providing any constructor compiler will place a default(no arg constructor) and call to it's super class constructor.

Compiler provide following code for B class as follows.

class B extends A{

So constructors are not inherited although they are chained.

public class A {
A() {

public class B extends A{


1. Class B if in the same package as of A.

2. Class B constructor default access is public.

3. Class B constructor will make call class A default constructor, here class A has explicit constructor declared with default access so it will be executed as a first thing in constructor B.

4. According to me option is correct at all.

Can anyone please explain about initialization of a float object.

Can anyone please explain about initialization of a float object.

Meaning of these two lines:.

Float f1[ ], f2[ ];

F1 = new float[10];

One constructor cannot inherit another constructor in any case.
