"if the overridden method does not throw any exception, the overriding method cannot throw any checked exception, but it can still throw a runtime exception"

does it mean...

class A {
void methodA {}
class B extends A{
void methodA throws ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException, ClassCastException {}

is legal??

boolean b = true;<br />System.out.println ("I believe in Java.<br />Java will make my dream come " + b);

You can declare any runtime exceptions
