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.|
