hi there,
Can you please tell me why is the following code gives a compilation error?
public class ThrowsDemo {
static void throwMethod() {
System.out.println("Inside throwMethod.");
throw new IllegalAccessException("demo");
public static void main(String args[]) {
try {
} catch (IllegalAccessException e) {
System.out.println("Caught " + e);

Method signature should include throws clause.
static void throwMethod() throws IllegalAccessException
