looks to me like it's creating an object, using that to create a second one, and then printing it out.

what do YOU think it's doing?

You may be thrown off because Exceptions extends Exception, but since you are not throwing any exceptions you can consider them to be just simple objects.

Let me have a go..

You are creating a new type of Exception and then "returning" that Exception (which is also throwable) from a method.

If you modify your program like so..

You could trace the call to the method e. So I think this might be one way of to determine how a certain method/constructor gets called in the execution of a program without exiting the normal flow of the program.

 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
