Jaworski, P.153 Q 5 implies that constructors can have a return type. Is it possible for constructors to have a return type?

HI ZHEESHAN,
constructor does not have an explicit return type not even void.The implicit retun type of a class's constructor is the class type itself.

hi
just to add to what nitin correctly said.


the following code will not give any errors


class MyClass
{
MyClass()
{
return;
}
public static void main(String[] arg)
{
MyClass c= new MyClass();
System.out.println(c);
}
}
