Class CloneNotSupportedException

Implemented Interfaces:
Known Direct Subclasses:

public class CloneNotSupportedException
extends Exception

Thrown to indicate an object should not or could not be cloned. This includes the case when Object.clone() is called on an object which does not implement the Cloneable interface. For example:
 void m() throws CloneNotSupportedException

Notice that calling clone() on an array will never produce this exception, as the VM will always succeed in copying the array, or cause an OutOfMemoryError first. For example:

 void m(int[] array)
   int[] copy = (int[]) array.clone();
