We will look at all of these concepts in detail in this article. Polymorphism can be broadly classified into two categories: static polymorphism and dynamic polymorphism. Static polymorphism is implemented via method overloading, and dynamic polymorphism is implemented via inheritance and method overriding. Continue reading
