Hi Team,

Below is the code which I have wriiten to check the number of instances created for an Class called as Employee.
 
Somehow the code does not gives the expected output. Iam used a method called as checkinstances to check the number of instances created for the Employee class .

If it is equal to 3 , I throwing an exception. Also Iam checking the number of intances created using the overridden method called CheckInstances in both Clone and in constructor.

Any help in is really appreciated.

I don't get the error you're getting. Is that the exact code you're running?

Try adding some debug logging in every place where you're incrementing your counter. Have it log something like "In Employee()" or "In clone()" and see how many times each operation is happening.

Your code would count the instances correctly as far as I can see. You increment the count twice, and two objects are created, which seems ok.
