How to continue after an Exception?

Is it possible to continue a Java program after if it catches and deals with an exception?
For example, say I am processing 1000 records from a file, one at a time. If the 6th record causes a Java Exception, I want to be able to skip it and continue processing the remaining 994 records.
Is this possible with Java Exception handling? If so, how?

I'm glad you're trying to learn more about Java and how it can help you to deal with problems (and I think you're on the right track with Exception Handling). But please don't post the same thread in multiple forums. It's very confusing and wastes peoples time when they answer a question thats already been answered elsewhere.
I've left the thread open in the Java in General (intermediate) forum, in order to continue the discussion. You can find it here.
