Simple question,
HF page 274 Last paragraph
Note: a client will not get an exception if a multi-entity finder can't find any mathces! Instead, the client will still get a Colection, but it simply be empty.

HF page 275
public Collection findByCity(String city) throws FinderException, RemoteException;

pls. let me know what exactly I am missing here.

Find methods that return an Enumeration or Collection type (multi-entity finders) return an empty collection (not a null reference) if no matching beans can be found or throw a FinderException if an application error occurs.
