Hi everyone,

I am new to this forum and I have just started on my assignment.
Will exceptions from server propagated through RMI to the client ?
I wanta know if I should catch the Database exception at my DataDBImpl class. I don't really want to declare the DataBase exception in my interface class because i think it will make the interface to be become less "general"
Please give me some feedback,
Thank you

I feel the application should notify all errors to users. They should be aware the application is no longer fully functional due to some error.

So it means that exception does propagate from server to client through rmi and I should catch the exception in my swing client, am i correct ?

Yes, for instance if you attempt to modify a record that has been deleted you would want to notify your user, so that they'll know why the modification failed.
