    Does a class inherit constructors from its superclass?

    The answer is No.Constructors cannot be inherited.Constructors are used to initialize a valid sate of an object.Whenever a subclass instance is created then it calls no argument default constructor of super class.

    The following code will explain implicit call to default constructor of base class:-

    class Base {
    Base() {
    System.out.println("I am constructing Base");
    class Child extends Base {
    Child() {
    System.out.println("I am constructing Child");

    public class A {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
    Child child = new Child();

    Once executed this code will print:

    I am constructing Base
    I am constructing Child

    It means when a child class object is created it inherently calls no arg default constructor of base class.
