Hi All,

Could you please tell me when we can write throw statement in a catch block?

There's nothing special in a catch block that would restrict you from throwing exceptions in there - exactly the same rules apply as outside a catch block.

Is there something specific, or do you have some example code, to explain why you have this question?

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
