Java Exception Hierarchy Chart

Does anyone know any good websites where I could see the Java Exception Classes in some sort of class diagram form(such as UML). I am finding it difficult to remember which classes are Checked Exceptions and which are UnChecked and I feel a diagram that I could print off and stick up in front of me would be benificial.

Just look at the JavaDocs for java.lang.RuntimeException. RuntimeException and all its descendants are unchecked; all other exceptions are checked.
