If I tell you the answer right away, it's not a good way to learn Do you know the difference between unchecked and checked exception? If you do, you should be able to answer your own question.

as per my understanding it is a checked exception.

and.. as per rules of overriding..
the overridding method should not throw new or broader exceptions.
hence i am confused with the below question in k&B book excercise for chapter -5 qustion no.3..
only a & d should be correct.
but answer involves e&f also which throw new exception numberformatexception. thats my confusion.

------------
class Animal {
public void eat() throws Exception {
// throws an Exception
}
}
class Dog2 extends Animal {
public void eat() { // no Exceptions }
public static void main(String [] args) {
Animal a = new Dog2();
Dog2 d = new Dog2();
d.eat(); // ok
a.eat(); // compiler error -
// unreported exception
}
}
------------
Which, inserted independently at // insert code here, will compile, and produce the output
b? (Choose all that apply.)
A. String doFileStuff() { return "b"; }
B. String doFileStuff() throws IOException { return "b"; }
C. String doFileStuff(int x) throws IOException { return "b"; }
D. String doFileStuff() throws FileNotFoundException { return "b"; }
E. String doFileStuff() throws NumberFormatException { return "b"; }
F. String doFileStuff() throws NumberFormatException,
FileNotFoundException { return "b"; }
Answer:
�� 3 A, D, E, and F are correct. It���s okay for an overriding method to throw the same
exceptions, narrower exceptions, or no exceptions. And it���s okay for the overriding
method to throw any runtime exceptions.
���� B is incorrect, because the overriding method is trying to throw a broader exception.
C is incorrect. This method doesn���t override, so the output is a. (Objective 2.4)

NumberFormatException is a RuntimeException (unchecked exception) and for overriding method, you're allowed to throw any RuntimeException. Thus E and F are correct.

yes.i checked in API.its a runtime exception.

what i thougt is
JVM thrown == runtime exception (unchecked)
Programatically thrown = compile time(checked)

hence my understanding is wrong.

so please tell me how to differentiate between runtime and compile time exceptions
