In Throws, what ever the exception you are declaring are
handle by JVM. If it is a user defined exception in throws
block, JVM doesn't know when to throw that exception. For
this purpose we use Throw for a certain conditions/logic to
throw these user defined exceptions.
Method capable of raising an exception but not handling the
same. i.e to say no Try Catch block is implemented in the
Method, to handle the exception.
The callers should create the Try Catch Block to safeguard
against the exception.
If the above is not followed it would result in Compilation
The method that raises the exception also handles the same
in its Catch block.
If unhandled the exception can also be handles by the
Callers Try Catch Block.
Hope this makes sense.
throws --> throws declare that it throws the exception to
the calling method.
throw --> it is surrounded by the try catch block actually
it does the work, of throwing the exception.
public void testMethod() throws BusinessException
// catch all the exceptions and provide some meaningful
throw BusinessException("An error occured while
trying to connect to DB");
throw : throw is used to throw exception by user whenever he
feels to throw exceptions. throw is used to throw
either user defined or runtime exception.
for ex : throw new MyException(), here MyException
is user written exception.
throw new NullPointerException(), here
NullPointerException is RuntimeException.
throws: throws is used by the method to throw exception to
the calling method. And method itself does not able
to handle it so it throws to calling method.
