class WhiteException extends ColorException {}

class White

void m1() throws ColorException {throw new WhiteException();}
void m2() throws WhiteException {}

public static void main (String[] args)
{
White white = new White();
int a,b,d,f; a = b = d = f = 0;

try
{
white.m1();
a++;

Why do you think m2 is required to throw a WhiteException?

The method m2 doesn't actually throw the WhiteException, so it just returns normally. The throws keyword only says "Look out! I could throw this Exception if things go wrong!" It doesn't mean that the Exception WILL be thrown, only that it CAN be.
 
Wait for it ... wait .... wait .... NOW! Pafiffle! A perfect tiny ad!
