Method overloading increases the readability of the program. Method overriding provides the specific implementation of the method that is already provided by its super class parameter must be different in case of overloading, parameter must be same in case of overriding.

  1. Overloading happens at compile-time. while Overriding happens at runtime.The binding of overloaded method call to its definition has happens at compile-time however binding of overridden method call to its definition happens at runtime.
  2. Static methods can be overloaded which means a class can have more than one static method of same name. Static methods cannot be overridden, even if you declare a same static method in child class it has nothing to do with the same method of parent class.
  3. The most basic difference is that overloading is being done in the same class while for overriding base and child classes are required. Overriding is all about giving a specific implementation to the inherited method of parent class.
  4. Static binding is being used for overloaded methods and dynamic binding is being used for overridden/overriding methods.
  5. Performance: Overloading gives better performance compared to overriding. The reason is that the binding of overridden methods is being done at runtime.
