Why try catch is required(compulsory) for JDBC connection?

It isn't required, you can always propagate exceptions.
But, databases are often remote processes and possibly on remote machines, and therefore you always need to be aware of the possibility of failure.

Thanks David.I may have presnented this question not in a clear way.I was asking why we need to enclose our jdbc code in a try- catch block (handle it).I found the answer and it lies in checked exception handling.
