Hi Experts,

    I already declared name and age in the superclass, why that I can't use them in the subclass line 01 & line 02 ?

   Thanks !!!

--------------------
public abstract class MyAnimal {
   
    /** Creates a new instance of MyAnimal */
    public MyAnimal() {
    }
    String name ;
    int age ;
    void Talk(){System.out.println("Each animal has its own language."); }
    void Eat(){System.out.println("Each animal needs food.") ;}
    void Weight(){System.out.println("I don't like fat animals !") ;}
}
----------------------------------------
public class MyDog extends MyAnimal{
   
    name = new String("Doggy") ;            // line 01
    age = new int(5) ;                              // line 02
    /** Creates a new instance of MyDog */
    public MyDog() {
        System.out.println("I am a dog. My name is Doggy !") ;
    }
   
    void Talk(){
        System.out.println("    Woof ! I talk as Woof Woof !") ;
    }
   
    void Eat(){
        System.out.println("    Woof ! I like to eat bones.") ;
    }
   
    void Weight(){
        System.out.println("    Woof ! I weight 60 pounds.") ;
    }
}
