This week's book giveaway is in the General Computing forum. We're giving away four copies of Arduino in Action and have Martin Evans, Joshua Noble, and Jordan Hochenbaum on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm new to Java and I have the below code which when compiled gives the error:- unreported exception java.io.IOexception; must be caught or declared to be thrown.
Since I'm catching the IOException in my code, I think I don't really need to declare the IOException to be thrown on main method. It compiles successfully only when I declare the IOException to be thrown on main method.
What can be done to make this code compile successfully without declaring the IOException to be thrown on main method?
First, a bit of business: you may not have read our naming policy on the way in. It requires that you use a full, real (sounding) first and last name for your display name. Joke names aren't acceptable. You can change your display name here. Thanks!
Now, as to your question: Those "close" calls can throw IOException, and they're not in a try block. Yes, this is a pain, and yes, everybody hates this. Solution? Another try block inside the finally block, which catches the IOException.
