hi

why we can;t throw more than one excption in a try block as shown in below code.

public int method6() {

//throw new RuntimeException();
try{
throw new ArithmeticException();
throw new RuntimeException();
}
catch(RuntimeException re){
}
return 0;
}

but if we provide in the if else code then it will compiled
public int method6() throws Exception {

try{
int i = 1;
if (i==1){
throw new ArithmeticException(); }
else {

throw new RuntimeException();}
}
catch(RuntimeException re){
}
return 0;

}

In your first example the second throw clause will never be reached, so the compiler will complain about it being unreachable.

However, in the second example, there is a chance of either one of the throw clauses will execute (depends on the result of the expression in the if-stat), so the compiler won�t complain about it.
