Overloading and overriding both fall under the concept of polymorphism, which is one of the essential features of OOP.

There is a significant difference between Method Overloading and Method Overriding in Java. Let us see:

It is performed at compile time. It is performed at runtime.
It is carried out within a class. It is carried out with two classes having an IS-A relationship between them.
Parameters do not remain the same in case of overloading. The parameter must remain the same in case of overriding.
You can perform overloading on static methods. You cannot perform overriding on static methods.
Overloaded methods use static binding. Overridden methods use dynamic binding.
