- why does it compile fine even without main() method doesn't handle/declare exception by invoking printAll(args)
[the rule says all the methods in the chain should handle/ declare exception if one of them throws an exception; am I missing something?]

Hi,


Imagine the call stack as a 100 floors building.

And Exception a ball thrown down.

The restriction imposed becomes it should not touch the ground.
-------------------------------------------------------------

In your case ball not all dropped from 2nd floor. you are expecting something should be caught at 1st floor.

Jibs asked:

Because the method signature of printAll() does not declare that it throws an exception.



Yours,
Bu.
