Hi guys,

Im catching the exception and I want to print a more specific exception, its this possible?

Because if i fo to java.lang.Exception, we have a lot of subclasses:
ex.
AclNotFoundException, ActivationException, AlreadyBoundException, ApplicationException, AWTException, BackingStoreException, BadLocationException, CertificateException.





Thanks.

Regards,
-M

Yes. If no exception class from the API suits your needs, you can make your own class by extending java.lang.Exception and throw an instance of it.

It depends what you mean by that. Your print statement will print whatever the exception really is, regardless of what you catch it as.
