Throw Clause Examples

  • Use 'throw' statement to throw an exception or simply use the throw clause with an object reference to throw an exception.
  • The syntax is 'throw new Exception();'. Even you can pass the error message to the Exception constructor.
Below example shows how to throw an exception.

Throw Clause Sample Code

Code:
package com.myjava.exceptions;

public class MyExplicitThrow {
    public static void main(String a[]){
        try{
            MyExplicitThrow met = new MyExplicitThrow();
            System.out.println("length of JUNK is "+met.getStringSize("JUNK"));
            System.out.println("length of WRONG is "+met.getStringSize("WRONG"));
            System.out.println("length of null string is "+met.getStringSize(null));
        } catch (Exception ex){
            System.out.println("Exception message: "+ex.getMessage());
        }
    }
    
    public int getStringSize(String str) throws Exception{
        if(str == null){
            throw new Exception("String input is null");
        }
        return str.length();
    }
}

Example Output

length of JUNK is 4
length of WRONG is 5
Exception message: String input is null

Procedural Vs Object-oriented Programs
In procedural program, programming logic follows certain procedures and the instructions are executed one after another. In OOP program, unit of program is object, which is nothing but combination of data and code.

In procedural program, data is exposed to the whole program whereas in OOPs program, it is accessible with in the object and which in turn assures the security of the code.
Famous Quotations
There is a great difference between worry and concern. A worried person sees a problem, and a concerned person solves a problem.
