Polymorphism is one of the key concepts of object oriented programming; polymorphism enables us to have different methods with the same name. The appropriate method to be called will be decided at compile/run time.

There are 2 types of Polymorphism.

Static / Compile time Polymorphism
Dynamic / Runtime Polymorphism.

Static / Compile time Polymorphism is achieved through function/method overloading.

Dynamic / runtime Polymorphism is achieved using the concept of inheritance; the methods defined in the base class can be overridden in the derived class and can be called dynamically at runtime.

Let us see static and dynamic Polymorphism in detail in the following posts.
