Skillfox discussion forum question


What will appear in the standard output if tryThis() throws a NumberFormatException?
a. Nothing
b. "exception 1", followed by "finally"
c. "exception 2", followed by "finally"

e. "exception 2"

The answer they have given is c.But when i execute the program ,i got the error at line 1 telling

You are correct ShivMohan!!!
Some mock exams confuse us; Very bad;


NumberFormatException(unchecked exception) IS-A IllegalArgumentException IS-A RuntimeException;



IOException extends Exception and is checked exception;
If you catch the IOException (checked exception), the try
block must throw that exception otherwise compilation error.



In your question tryThis() throws NumberFormatException, so
compiler recognizes this and gives error;

Confirm this!!!

Thanks for the reply Chandra.Yes the question asked that tryThis() throws NumberFormatException.

So if the checkedException is caught or declared in the method,we must throw it in try block.Am i correct

Nay,
In case you declare the checked exception in the method, you need not to throw it in that, you mean by declaring that you are ducking the exception.


In case of try catch case , you are correct.


No problem with this code!!!
