The following code taken from K&B. The book says it should compile fine, when I tested it... it gave me a compiler error. Why?



Thanks a lot.

oh I have it in the code... just forgot to paste it here. This is what I have.

import java.lang.*;

public class Foo {
public void doStuff(int y, String s) { }
public void moreThings(int x) { }
}

class Bar extends Foo {
public void doStuff(int y, long s) throws IOException { }
}

My question is doStuff is an overloaded method... it should not give a compiler error it throws exceptions.

import java.io.*;


Really you must include the above package to compile .
And if you have already included in your code then let me make you sure that is overloaded method.
the code compiles good after importing quoted package.
