Java Inheritance

The Inheritance concept in Java brings the code reuse functionality by using the inherit feature. This allows a class to inherit the members of a class already present. Therefore, the concept of base and derived class is what Inheritance is all about in Java.

  • Base class: The base class is the parent class.
  • Derived class: The derived class is the child class since it is derived from the parent class.
