Hello. I'm doing a lab assignment and I have several subclasses extending the base class. I'm not sure how to "override" the methods and implementations in the supers, because every time my driver class calls a method on my subclass, the superclass method gets called. Heck even within the subclass any calls to the method (its a recursive method) refer to the superclass version of it. Yes, based on prior research I do know java doesn't have anything like a virtual method.
I have some idea based on prior research that I need to leave my superclass methods as stubs. Which means I've wasted a ton of time writing and debugging those methods, because they are unnecessary. -.- I blame the instructor for his flakey UML diagaram in that case. The guy is kind of an airhead. xD
