Am I correct ?
We catch all kind of exceptions, wrap it into other exception, say RemoteException, and throw that Exception (RemoteException).
We do this because client needs to catch only single exception (RemoteException).
I did something like this in my developer project in 2002, I am following same in my office project, but I stopped thinking why I was doing this.
Just a thought came to mind why we wrap exceptions to other, so I am posting what I guessed. (Easiest way to solve doubts).
Please let me know if I am wrong &/or missing something.
