Well why didn't you then?

What exactly were you expecting for such a basic question?

Surely a peer-reviewed wikipedia example is better than something we pull out of our hats?

briefly polymorphism is  implementing the same method depends on object.

a simple  sample;

public interface Person () {
  public void speak();
}

public TurkishPerson implements Person {
  public void speak() {
    System.out.println("merhabe");
 }
}

public EnglishPerson  implements Person {
  public void speak() {
    System.out.println("hello");
 }
}

I guess most OO code exhibits polymorphism is some way or other...

GUI frameworks especially...
