Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Calling a Virtual Method from a Non-Virtual Method

How can you tell which f2() will be invoked: A::f2() method or B::f2()? In the following code, f1 is not virtual—thus, it calls A::f1(); which in turn calls the f2() function. Because f2() is virtual, it doesnt call A::f2() it calls B::f2().

class A{
 void f1(){
cout<<"A::f1 invoked "<<endl;
f2(); //calling f2 function

virtual void f2()
cout<<" A::f2() invoked"<<endl;};

class B:public A
   void f2(){
cout<<"B::f2()  is invoked"<<endl;

int main()
A *a=new B();
a->f1(); //f1 is not virtual ;
return 1;
