Description

This class implements a clone() method but does not implement Cloneable.

It appears that the programmer intended for this class to implement the Cloneable interface because it implements a method named clone(). However, the class does not implement the Cloneable interface and the clone() method will not behave correctly.


Risk Factors

TBD

Examples

Calling clone() for this class will result in a CloneNotSupportedException.

	public class Kibitzer {
	  public Object clone() throws CloneNotSupportedException {
		... 
	  }
	}
