This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
In Chapter 5 of K&B Java 5 (Page 370) its mentioned that NumberFormatException is Programmatically thrown Exception.
But if I see this in java spec then it extends from IllegalArgumentException which extends from RuntimeException .
So this should be a JVM exception rather than programmatically thrown Exception.
Same is the case of IllegalArgumentException.
Doesn't programmtically thrown Exception means Checked/compileTime Exception? Or may be I am mixing up these two things?
