Hi there,
Well i just want to know that, is there any limit to the number of "catch" block associated with a try block?

Not that I'm aware of. But if your code starts getting unmanageable, you might want to rethink your approach.

Thanks weber, but i want the answer in exact figure, if any. Approach is different thing while limit is something else, And i want that limit over the number of catch block if it is there by sun team while developing jdk1.5.

Sounds like some exceptional code you're contemplating.

I don't know the answer, but I suspect the Zero One Infinity (ZOI) rule might apply here.

Have you been through the Java Language Specification and the Virtual Machine Specification? You will find Marc is correct if you go through them.

The only limit is probably the size limit of both source file and class file.

I cleaned up most of the name warning PM's
I should have enough space for a while now.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
