Course Description

This course explores Exception Handling in Java and provides users with a strong conceptual and theoretical foundation and examines practical code-based scenarios. Begin by examining what exceptions are in Java and how Java's class hierarchy addresses errors, runtime exceptions, and checked exceptions. An exception is an event that disrupts the normal flow when executing a program, and you will learn here how to differentiate between exceptions and errors. Participants will learn to use Java's catch-or-specify requirement on code that throws specific types of exceptions. You will also learn that an exception handler is code which deals with a particular exception, both its type and location, in the program. Next, learn the sequence of method calls or function calls which culminated in the exception being thrown. The course will then explore the common runtime exceptions, and see how input-output (IO)-related code often poses special challenges in exception handling. Finally, you will be shown how exception handling is tied to the try-catch keywords.
