Hi ,

Methods and constructors both use super to refer to a superclass, but in different ways. Methods use super to execute an overridden method in the superclass

class MethodTest {
void getBirthInfo() {
class Welcome extends MethodTest {
void getBirthInfo() {
System.out.println("This is simple.");
System.out.print("a mammal normally is ");

Constructors and methods use the keyword this quite differently. A method uses this to refer to the instance of the class that is executing the method. Static methods do not use this; they do not belong to a class instance, so this would have nothing to reference. Static methods belong to the class as a whole, rather than to an instance. Constructors use this to refer to another constructor in the same class with a different parameter list. Study the following code:

public class Welcome {
String name;
Welcome(String input) {
name = input;
Welcome() {
this("Welcome to Rose");
public static void main(String args[]) {
Welcome p1 = new Welcome("digger");
Welcome p2 = new Welcome();
System.out.println("Welcome to India");
