Different Classifications of Methods

Let's take a look at the different ways to classify methods in Java.

Void method vs. non-void method

As we discussed in the last lesson, a method may or may not return a value.

  • A void method is a method that does not return anything. It is declared using the keyword void.

  • A method that returns a value can be classified as a non-void method. The return type for such functions can be primitive or reference type.
