What is the difference between throw and throws?..

Answer / rakesh nath

Throw clause is used in any part of the code where you want
to throw any specific exception to the calling method while
throws can be termed as a substitute for try-catch block.

When an exception occurs in a program, the compiler needs to
know what should be done with that exception. For that
either we should have a try-catch block or the method should
have the throws clause attached, as follows.

<access-modifier> <return-type> myMethod(<parameter-list>)
throws <exception-list>

for example, public void meth1() throws MyException

throw can handle only ONE throwable object while throws can
handle multiple throwable objects seperated by commas.
