Its a pleasure to send a post to author Mr.Herb Schildt. Your book "Java: The complete reference" has been a bible for me since many years! I take this opportunity to thank you for providing us such wonderful books.

Coming to my question: We usually concentrate a lot on how to get the logic right and end up overlooking the error handling part. I would like to know how well does the cookbook recipes cover error handling? or say, with how much importance does the cookbook talk about handling errors?

Hi smee,

Thanks for your kind words. They are appreciated. There have been so many questions that its taken longer than I wanted to get to yours.

As to your question. In the recipes I point out a number of possible errors and exceptions that can occur. And, I include error handling appropriate for the example programs in the book. But I must stress, however, that error handling must be carefully crafted to each application. What is appropriate in one case may not be in another.

Thank you for the thoughtful response. Its very true that error handling must be crafted precisely for each application.
