What are exceptions in Java and how are they handled?

Exceptions in Java represent abnormal conditions that occur during the execution of a program and disrupt the normal flow. They can be handled using the try-catch-finally blocks. Here’s how they work:

  • The try block: It contains the code that might throw an exception. If an exception occurs, the control is transferred to the catch block.
  • The catch block: It catches and handles the exception. Multiple catch blocks can be used to handle different types of exceptions.
  • The finally block: It is optional and executes regardless of whether an exception occurs or not. It is commonly used to release resources like closing a file or database connection.

By catching and handling exceptions, you can gracefully handle errors and prevent the program from crashing.
