    Description

      javac generates spurious error messages for this test case:

      record R(){
              public R throws Exception {}
      }

      R.java:2: error: <identifier> expected
              public R throws Exception {}
                      ^
      R.java:2: error: field declaration must be static
              public R throws Exception {}
                       ^
        (consider replacing field with record component)
      R.java:2: error: invalid method declaration; return type required
              public R throws Exception {}
                              ^
      Note: R.java uses preview language features.
      Note: Recompile with -Xlint:preview for details.
      3 errors

      a better error message should be generated
