There are various advantages of using inheritance in Java that is given below.
Inheritance provides code reusability. The derived class does not need to redefine the method of base class unless it needs to provide the specific implementation of the method.
Runtime polymorphism cannot be achieved without using inheritance.
We can simulate the inheritance of classes with the real-time objects which makes OOPs more realistic.
Inheritance provides data hiding. The base class can hide some data from the derived class by making it private.
Method overriding cannot be achieved without inheritance. By method overriding, we can give a specific implementation of some basic method contained by the base class.
