In Java, you cannot override a static method in the traditional sense, and if you create a method with the same signature in the subclass, it is not considered method overriding but rather method hiding.
When you define a static method in a class, it is associated with the class itself, not with instances of the class. Therefore, static methods are resolved at compile-time based on the reference type, not the runtime object type. This means that if you create a method with the same name and signature in a subclass, it will not override the static method in the superclass; instead, it will shadow or hide it.
Here's an example to illustrate this concept:
