    Does this code compile?
    If yes, what are the exceptions thrown by JVM?
    If no, what are the errors spit out by compiler?

    And Welcome to Java Programming Forums. Read the forums Rules too. Enclose your code in code tags.

    I'm not really sure what your question is then? If you want help, you'll have to ask a specific technical question and provide an SSCCE that demonstrates what's going on.
