That means in your myMethod1(), you must either declare or catch the EOFException because myMethod2() declares the EOFException.

Like what I've already mentioned above. Whenever you call a method that declares a checked exception, you muse either declare it or catch it. For your information, declaring an exception means having "throws" clause in your method definition.

It seems that you're trying to call myMethod1(). In myMethod1() you declare EOFException, so whenever you call myMethod1(), you need to either catch the EOFException or declare it.

Hope this can clear your doubts.

Hi

Thanks a lot but still my doudt is not cleared.

My Question is Why iam gettin the Exception after the declaration !

code is ->

import java.io.*;
class Excep {
int i=0;
/*public int myMethod1()
{
try{

i= myMethod2();
System.out.println(i);
}
catch(IOException e)
{
e.printStackTrace();
}
return i;
}*/

public int myMethod1() throws EOFException
{
return myMethod2();
}
public int myMethod2() throws EOFException
{
int a=10;int b=20;
int c=a+b;
return c;
}

public static void main(String args[])
{
Excep e=new Excep();
e.myMethod1();
}
}

This is where your problem lies.

Did you declare the exception? No.
Did you catch the exception? Also no.
Why do you think you need to declare/catch the exception when calling myMethod1()? Because myMethod1() declares EOFException.

So what do you think that you need to do to fix it?
Declare it.

or catch it.
