What You Will Learn

  • Introduction to Errors and Exception Handling in Java: Get acquainted with the importance of error handling and how Java’s exception framework is structured to handle unexpected scenarios.
  • Unchecked Runtime Exceptions: Dive deep into unchecked exceptions and understand their impact on application logic.
    • Overview of Unchecked Exceptions: Learn what unchecked exceptions are, why they occur, and how to handle them.
  • Checked Exceptions: Explore checked exceptions that Java forces you to handle.
    • Overview of Checked Exceptions: Understand the differences between checked and unchecked exceptions and why checked exceptions require explicit handling.
  • Catching Exceptions: Develop your skills in catching exceptions to prevent application crashes and handle unexpected scenarios gracefully.
    • Try-catch: Learn the basics of the try-catch block for handling exceptions.
    • Example: ArithmeticException: Understand the common ArithmeticException (division by zero) and how to handle it.
    • Example: NullPointerException: Learn how to handle NullPointerException, one of the most frequent exceptions in Java.
    • Example: IndexOutOfBoundsException: Grasp how to prevent and handle IndexOutOfBoundsException when accessing arrays or lists.
    • Example: ClassCastException: Understand type conversion errors and how to handle ClassCastException.
    • Example: NumberFormatException: Learn to handle NumberFormatException which occurs due to invalid number format conversions.
  • Throwing Exceptions: Learn how to throw exceptions to enforce rules and manage exceptional scenarios.
    • Throw new exceptions (throw keyword): Understand how and when to throw new exceptions using the throw keyword.
    • Example: Throwing New Exception: Learn through practical examples of how to throw exceptions correctly.
  • Exception Forwarding: Understand how to forward exceptions up the call stack.
    • Return Exception to Caller (throws keyword): Learn how the throws keyword allows methods to propagate exceptions to callers.
    • Example: Exception Forwarding: See examples of how exception forwarding works in practice.
