Hi 'All
I have a small doubt
class FrequencyException extends Exception{

}
in the above declaration does FrequencyException is a checked exception or is it a runtime exception??
Thank you

It is checked. If you want to make an unchecked exception, try extending RuntimeException.

but then why the following code is not giving any error
class FrequencyException extends Exception{
public class Note{
public static void main(String argv[]){
System.out.print(n.tune()); }
public int tune(){
try{
return play(444);
}catch(Exception e){
System.out.println(e.getMessage());
}catch(FrequencyException fe){
System.out.println(fe.getMessage());
} }
public int play(int iFrequency)throws FrequencyException{
return 1; }}
}

I guess when a method throws a checked exception there MUST be a throw statement in the method.here 'play' is not having any ..
is there any thing wrong in this theory...
thank you

Throws clause in a method mean - it can throw FrequencyException, not like that it must have throw FrequencyException.

Shabir: That is true. However, if there is any mention of any checked exception in a method's signature, any call to that method must either catch or declare even though original method does NOT actually throw the declared exception.
Rishi: Your code is actually catching mentioned exception. Therefore, it should compile o.k. However try following code. It will give you error:
