In section Understanding Views (page 484), when introducing the methods Files.readAttributes() and Files.getFileAttributeView() the third paragraph starts with:

Both of these methods can throw a checked IOException, such as when the view class type is unsupported.



But only the Files.readAttributes() method can throw an Exception. The Files.getFileAttributeView() returns null when the view class type is not supported.
