Simple Hierarchical Inheritance Example Program


Inheritance is when an object or class is based on another object or class, using the same implementation specifying implementation to maintain the same behavior. It is a mechanism for code reuse and to allow independent extensions of the original software via public classes and interfaces. The relationships of objects or classes through inheritance give rise to a hierarchy. In hierarchical inheritance a single class serves as a superclass (base class) for more than one sub class.


Class A{
	public void methodA(){
		//Do Something
Class B : public A{
	public void methodB(){
		//Do Something
Class C : public A{
	public void methodC(){
		//Do Something
