Uses of Class

Packages that use LinkageError
java.lang Provides classes that are fundamental to the design of the Java programming language. 
java.lang.reflect Provides classes and interfaces for obtaining reflective information about classes and objects. 

Uses of LinkageError in java.lang

Subclasses of LinkageError in java.lang
 class AbstractMethodError
          Thrown when an application tries to call an abstract method.
 class ClassCircularityError
          Thrown when a circularity has been detected while initializing a class.
 class ClassFormatError
          Thrown when the Java Virtual Machine attempts to read a class file and determines that the file is malformed or otherwise cannot be interpreted as a class file.
 class ExceptionInInitializerError
          Signals that an unexpected exception has occurred in a static initializer.
 class IllegalAccessError
          Thrown if an application attempts to access or modify a field, or to call a method that it does not have access to.
 class IncompatibleClassChangeError
          Thrown when an incompatible class change has occurred to some class definition.
 class InstantiationError
          Thrown when an application tries to use the Java new construct to instantiate an abstract class or an interface.
 class NoClassDefFoundError
          Thrown if the Java Virtual Machine or a ClassLoader instance tries to load in the definition of a class (as part of a normal method call or as part of creating a new instance using the new expression) and no definition of the class could be found.
 class NoSuchFieldError
          Thrown if an application tries to access or modify a specified field of an object, and that object no longer has that field.
 class NoSuchMethodError
          Thrown if an application tries to call a specified method of a class (either static or instance), and that class no longer has a definition of that method.
 class UnsatisfiedLinkError
          Thrown if the Java Virtual Machine cannot find an appropriate native-language definition of a method declared native.
 class UnsupportedClassVersionError
          Thrown when the Java Virtual Machine attempts to read a class file and determines that the major and minor version numbers in the file are not supported.
 class VerifyError
          Thrown when the "verifier" detects that a class file, though well formed, contains some sort of internal inconsistency or security problem.

Uses of LinkageError in java.lang.reflect

Subclasses of LinkageError in java.lang.reflect
 class GenericSignatureFormatError
          Thrown when a syntactically malformed signature attribute is encountered by a reflective method that needs to interpret the generic signature information for a type, method or constructor.
