Exceptions are those which can be handled at the run time
where as errors cannot be handled.
Examples for exceptions: Array out of bonds, attempt to
divide by zero etc.

Answer / shahnawaz ali shah

Exception is coverable
Error is uncoverable

Exception can be handled
and Error can not be handled

Exceptio is an run time error when an abnormal condition is
occured the jvm detect it and make the object of that
abnormal condition and throws it to its own class and that
object is catched by catched block and catch block handled it

Error is the compile time error not runtime and it is not
covered it is only fixed by a programer.

Note
When Error occur then our programe stops and donot run

but If exception occur then nothing happining only try block
will be suspended and after that if any code is written that
will be executed properly means our system or programe work
properly.

Answer / sandeep tyagi

The functional diiference, in terms of the compiler, is
that you don't have to declare errors in throws clauses on
methods, or catch them.

Conceptually, an Error means something has gone wrong with
your program, which should usually give up and crash,
whereas an exception is for an unusual situation that you,
as a programmer, anticipated as a possibilty. So, for
example, a divide-by-zero is an Error, but attempting to
read a file and finding it doesn't exist is an Exception.

Answer / pranab garai

Exceptions are also kind of errors which we can hadle at
both compile time and run time by using try and catch
blocks.
These are two types: Compile time and runtime.
Sql and IO operations are come under compile time array
index out of bounds and null pointer these are come under
runtime exceptions

Errors are the problems which we cant hadle, like stack
overflow and memory out of bounds like that...

Answer / saurabh kumar gupta

Errors are the abnormal conditions which can not be handled
by your program and the program will immediately interrupt
while exceptions are those abnormal conditions which your
program can handle with the techniques of error handling.
Errors can not be handled and will stop uour program.
