What are the limitations of new() function as compared to build.

Recommended Posts

The key problem with new() is that you cannot override it, you can only extend it. The extension functionality must always be appended to the base class functionality because super.new() is implicitly or explicitly the first statement of any extended new function.

build has none of those requirements; you can put a call to super.build anywhere in the extended build as well as not all. BTW, UVM now uses build_phase() instead of build.
