This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I read it in a book ,that we need not to worry about Unchecked exceptions ,as JVM can handle it ,if we dont. But Checked ,we must do . But in most of the books ,tutorials ,net-lessons , i see ,all examples they take is of -Unchecked category .Even Creating User Defined excpetions from Unchecked. eg ArithmeticException .
Whats the trick .Is it because of easy & standard exceptions.Can we use all the excpetions in same way & extend all the excpetions.
When to use checked and unchecked has many answers. Sun had one in mind when they made checked exceptions, and one option is to follow their lead. Some folks think Sun blew it, and have other ideas. Thinking In Java has a good chapter on the subject that presents both points of view. Take the time to read chapter 9 (free, online) and let us know what you think.
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
