can we change return type of main() method?

As we discussed in previous question that we can overload main method. We can change the return type for main method but java compiler will refuse to acknowledge it as entry point for our application.

Example

public class Main
{
	public static String main(String[] args) {
		System.out.println("main method with ");
		return "w3spoint.com";
	}
}

Output

Error: Main method must return a value of type void in class Main, please   
define the main method as: 
   public static void main(String[] args)
