Because ArithmeticException is not a subclass of CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler

But the CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler is super class of ArithmeticException and if i am not wrong the super class can catch sub-class exception.

pinkal,
i cannot say B=C, but i can say : CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler = ArithmeticException and CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler = RuntimeException since in both cases the CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler is super class.

keith when i say CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler is super class of ArithmeticException , i mean that CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler is extending RuntimeException and RuntimeException is allowed to catch ArithmeticException

But that doesn't make CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler a superclass of ArithmeticException.

yes true, but CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler is extending RuntimeException and then CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler should inherit the feature of RuntimeException and hence be allowed to catch the ArithmeticException....i agree that CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler is not super class of ArithmeticException

No, it doesn't inherit that property.

CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler is a subclass of RuntimeException.

But it doesn't have any relation to ArithmeticException.

You'll need to make the parameter in the catch block ArithmeticException or one of its superclasses.

ok, i think i got your point.....but in that case, if i am writing my custom exception handler for my application, then how will i catch all the exception and handle them...

lets consider the original code is posted.. if there is some run time exception occuring that what can i do to handle that exception.




if i do something like this, is it fine

my basic purpose of throwing is CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler is that i have defined error file corresponding to CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler in my web.xml so that when ever my application throws error i can handle it declaratively using web.xml

Well you can. But it may not do what you want.

If you make the net too wide, then it will catch all exceptions.

You might want to rethink how you're handling exceptions.

If you're going to open the net wide, then you could use the instanceof operator or getClass() to determine the type of exception.

You can have several catch blocks.

Hi Chaurasia,


i can say : CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler = ArithmeticException and CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler = RuntimeException since in both cases the CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler is super class.



CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler = ArithmeticException // Not Alloved Pls Check
CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler = RuntimeException // This is valid
CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler is super class // I thing this is not currect

RuntimeException is super calss of both the Exception CDCRuntimeExceptionHandler and ArithmeticException

So if we catch the RuntimeException both will catch in runtime excpetion.

Hi guys,

I would suggest the following:



By creating and throwing your custom exception in an method you can then catch the custom exception when you call the method.

Not sure if this helps.

Finner
