thanks ... this is a good doc. I think i got the point. this is my understanding...Please do let me know if i am wrong. "The Overridden method in subclass is throwing unchecked exp... whereas overiding method restriction on exceptions is only for checked exceptions.
I mean - a overridden method in a subclass can throw subtypes of checked exception only but there is no restriction on unchecked exception. Overriding method in subclass is free to declare any new unchecked exception bt not checked exception".
please let me know...if i am close to correct explanation.
