Exceptions are ALWAYS thrown at runtime.

What you call CompileTimeException is actually called a checked exception. It differs from RuntimeException only in that you HAVE to catch or rethrow it.
Mostly, RuntimeExceptions are caused by mistakes by a programmer; often he just doesn't check if some assertion holds.
- IllegalArgumentException indicates a value has not been checked properly first
- NullPointerException indicates a value hasn't been checked against being null
- ArithmeticException indicates the programmer wanted to perform some arithmetic which isn't allowed (integer division by 0)

Checked exceptions on the other hand, are more often caused by external factors. A database can fail (SQLException), a hard drive or filesystem can fail (IOException), a network can fail (SocketException), etc. The programmer cannot check these things most of the times, and therefore is forced to handle the error.

Please note that a programmer can also throw checked exceptions to make sure other programmers are always aware of the exception, and don't just forget about them (which happens with NullPointerExceptions mostly).
