More of a beginner's question, as was your other posting. Please always use titles for your posts which tell what they are about; "exceptions" is a bit too general.

If you ever get your hands on a copy of "Object-Oriented Software Constructrion" by Bertrand Meyer, it has a nice chapter about errors and Exceptions in, although his handling examples are not quite as good as the rest of the chapter.
I am forever sending people to the Java Tutorials; there is always something useful there.
I agree. Here's the link:
