Is this correct? The main method can be something other than void, as long as there is a main method that is void. Can a main method be anything thing as long as there is a void method?

Yes, you can. If you by that mean if you can overload main
Note! You can have the same parameter in the header. That is your overloaded main can take String args. Overloaded method must have diffrent parameterlist

To start an application, the class you type after java,i.e. java ClassName must have a method with the signature public static void main( String args ) or it won't start. But you may have another method named main with different parameters (overloading main) if you wish. For instance private static int main( String s ) or double main( int i ) No problem.
