According to K &B chap 5 pg 365,
I wanted to ask ,if an exception is rethrown in some catch()block

will the next existing catch block(if its some related type or super type),not be able to handle this rethrown exception.

try{
....throw new IOException();
}
catch(IOException e ){throw e ;} //rethrown here
catch(Exception e){} //wont catch rethrwon exception
finally{}//gets control from 1st catch .

Hi,

It is true that the next existing catch block will not catch a re-thrown exception.

If you want to know more about it, please refer to this link.
