The text on Map.of says Map.of("key1", "value1", "key2"); compiles and throws runtime error, but it does not compile. Map.of is only overloaded with even parameter numbers https://docs.oracle.com/en/java/javase/11/docs/api/java.base/java/util/Map.html

No, it is only overloaded to take pairs of “K”s and “V”s. It goes K, V or K, V, K, V or K, V, K, V, K, V, K, V etc.. So you can't have odd numbers of parameters, Where does it say such code compiles?

On page 129 in the section on Map.of() and Map.copyOf() is the fragment:



Right below that fragment the first line says:

This code compiles but throws an error at runtime.
