Checked exception thrown by JVM, not programmer

In OCA: Oracle Certified Associate Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide on page 317 it says:

Checked exceptions have Exception in their hierarchy but not RuntimeException. They must be handled or declared. They can be thrown by the programmer or by the JVM.

Can someone give me an example of a checked exception that is thrown by the JVM?

The book gives some examples of exceptions that are thrown by the JVM, but they are either unchecked exceptions (ArithmeticException, ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException, ClassCastException, NullPointerException) or errors (ExceptionInInitializerError, StackOverflowError, NoClassDefFoundError).

JVM really means "or the built in java libraries" here. When reading a file, an IOException is thrown when problems occur. This is thrown by Java (vs the programmer.)

It's hard to come up with good examples because they are all outside the scope of the OCA!
For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
