public virtual class parent {

    public static void doStuff(){system.debug('stuff');} 


public class child extends parent{}

When I call


I get this error: Method does not exist or incorrect signature: child.doStuff()

Are static methods not inherited in salesforce or am I doing something wrong?

Apex is compatible with Java on this. Static methods are not inherited in a strict sense that means no polymorphism.

So, it is better if you access statics through the class and not an instance. It also produces compiler warnings which are definitely very helpful.
