Hi,

I read cloneable interface is tagging interface. Class must override Clone() metjod declaring it as public where as Clone() method declared as protected in Object class. Any ideas, suggestions, links, resources, sample code highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Well, you should ask more specific questions. Is there anything you don't understand?

The clone() method is very tricky. It's useful to know how it works, but you shouldn't be eager to put it to use. It breaks easily.

Effective Java™ by Joshua Bloch, page 54.
You may be able to find a sample chapter from the first edition free of charge on the net; that covers clone().
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
