How to Create Java Custom Exception

Sometimes it is required to develop meaningful exceptions based on application requirements. We can create our own exceptions by extending 'Exception' class. Below example shows how to create custom exception by extending Exception class.

Java Custom Exception Sample Code

Code:
package com.myjava.exceptions;

public class MyOwnException {
    public static void main(String[] a){
        try{
            MyOwnException.myTest(null);
        } catch(MyAppException mae){
            System.out.println("Inside catch block: "+mae.getMessage());
        }
    }
    
    static void myTest(String str) throws MyAppException{
        if(str == null){
            throw new MyAppException("String val is null");
        }
    }
}

class MyAppException extends Exception {

	private String message = null;

	public MyAppException() {
		super();
	}

	public MyAppException(String message) {
		super(message);
		this.message = message;
	}

	public MyAppException(Throwable cause) {
		super(cause);
	}

	@Override
	public String toString() {
		return message;
	}

	@Override
	public String getMessage() {
		return message;
	}
}

Example Output

Inside catch block: String val is null

Knowledge Centre
What is race condition?
A race condition is a situation in which two or more threads or processes are reading or writing some shared data, and the final result depends on the timing of how the threads are scheduled. Race conditions can lead to unpredictable results and subtle program bugs. A thread can prevent this from happening by locking an object. When an object is locked by one thread and another thread tries to call a synchronized method on the same object, the second thread will block until the object is unlocked.
Famous Quotations
There is a great difference between worry and concern. A worried person sees a problem, and a concerned person solves a problem.
