If our method body is blank we dont need to throw none right?
Also what is this processRequest () in servlet when we use tomcat? its not there in Servlet specification right? because it says service() will called either doGet() or doPost() method not processRequest() ?
While overriding we may throw fewer or narrower checked exceptions or any unchecked exceptions.
So I think it is not necessary to declare that doGet() or doPost() throws ServletException and IOException.
