how can I ensure that the other methods hav a toString method, not only one method

public void setName(String name)
this.name = name;

public String getSurname()
return surname;

public void setSurname(String surname)
this.surname = surname;

public String getAddress()
return address;

public void setAddress(String address)
this.address = address;
public String toString()
return "Person:" + getName();

I don't understand the question. methods don't have methods. Since every class will inherit a toString() method from the Object class (although it's probably not what you want).

Can you re-phrase what you are asking?

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

I don't think I understand what you're asking, but I'll take a wild guess...
