Where can one find a list of checked vs. unchecked exceptions...this ALWAYS gets me when trying to decide if an overriding method is legal because I don't know which are checked and which aren't. Thanks.

All subclasses of <code>Exception</code> which are not subclasses of <code>RuntimeException</code> are checked exceptions. Java API documentation is the best place to look for the list.
Hope that helps,
