Why don't you try it and find out?

Moving to Java in General (Beginner).

Yes it is possible... and the classic case is when you need to simply call sleep() and wait(), and don't mind returning early. You simply wrap it with a try-catch, and just continue. This is, of course, may be in another larger try block.
