Android Build an Interactive Story App (Retired) The Model-View-Controller Pattern Adding Custom Constructors

Why is not Ben doing this?

In Java Courses, one way I learnt to do this overloaded method is as following.

public Page(int imageId, String text){
    Page(int imageId,String text, null, null);

Why didn't Ben use this method?

To make it easy for others to understand and follow along, thats why. Both are correct, but the way Ben did it is easier to follow and read for new developers.

I think that while calling one constructor from another we should use this(int imageId,String text, null, null); instead of Page(int imageId,String text, null, null);
