Java Constructor Chaining Examples

Calling another constructor in the same class from another constructor is called constructor chaining. By using this() we can call another constructor in the same class. Incase we want to call another constructor, this() should be the first line in the constructor. Below example shows code for constructor chaining.

Java Constructor Chaining Sample Code

Code:
package com.myjava.constructors;

public class MyChaining {
    
    public MyChaining(){
        System.out.println("In default constructor...");
    }
    public MyChaining(int i){
        this();
        System.out.println("In single parameter constructor...");
    }
    public MyChaining(int i,int j){
        this(j);
        System.out.println("In double parameter constructor...");
    }
    
    public static void main(String a[]){
        MyChaining ch = new MyChaining(10,20);
    }
}

Example Output

In default constructor...
In single parameter constructor...
In double parameter constructor...

Difference between super() and this()
super() is used to call super class constructor, whereas this() used to call constructors in the same class, means to call parameterized constructors.
