Methods in general

A method in Java is a sequence of commands that are invoked in a predefined order.
A method declaration, or the method signature, is the API for the method and contains all essential information that needs to be known in order to call it. A method signature can be divided into several parts:

- The name of the method
- The input parameters of the method.
- The return type of the method.
- Possible exceptions that are thrown from the method.
- Method modifiers.

The format looks like this:

These different parts of the method signature will be explained in different sections under the ‘Methods’ category sections.
