Obviously it will print "In simple constructor"

If you have a rutun type like "void" then it is not a constructor anymore. it is a method with a duplicate name as the constructor.

ak pillai is right.

with the void its is no longer a constructer but a method which is returning nothing.

So it will print "In simple constructor"

Hey dear
It will print only that "In Simple Constructor". But well why see as long as U don't specify any return type even void with a constructor it is constructor. But when U specify a return type with a constructor it is no longer constructor it is just a memeber function of that class having duplicate name as constructor.
Did U understood? Hop U will get . By then tack care pls

yes it will not remain any more as constructor if we write the void type before it , because a constructor is having a class name with no return type specified , other wise it will become a method

It is possible to have a method with the same name as constructor because JVM uses different name spaces for methods and constructor. The one with return type is considered as method.

You can even do the following.

I don't know if it's possible to add package X to this
