What could cause the exception "java.lang.NoSuchMethodException"?

What could cause the exception "java.lang.NoSuchMethodException"?

One possible reason why this error message can be generated, would be if a script which executes a method on an object is run and the method does not exist. When looking at the line being executed in the script, it is best practice to check the SilkTest Help to confirm the method does exist. If it does not, then ensure a user-defined method or winclass has been written for the object. The problem should resolve itself as soon as a valid method is called.

The following information from java.sun.com in regards to this exception, can be accessed here.

Class NoSuchMethodException


public class NoSuchMethodException
extends Exception

Thrown when a particular method cannot be found.
