How are this() and super() used with constructors?

this() is used to invoke a constructor of the same class. super() is used to invoke a superclass constructor.

• Constructors use this to refer to another constructor in the same class with a different parameter list.

• Constructors use super to invoke the superclass’s constructor. If a constructor uses super, it must use it in the first line; otherwise, the compiler will complain.
