Java Programming - Exceptions - Discussion

Discussion Forum : Exceptions - Pointing out the correct statements (Q.No. 4)
System.out.print("Start ");
    System.out.print("Hello world");
    throw new FileNotFoundException();
System.out.print(" Catch Here "); /* Line 7 */
catch(EOFException e) 
    System.out.print("End of file exception");
catch(FileNotFoundException e) 
    System.out.print("File not found");
and given that EOFException and FileNotFoundException are both subclasses of IOException, and further assuming this block of code is placed into a class, which statement is most true concerning this code?
The code will not compile.
Code output: Start Hello world File Not Found.
Code output: Start Hello world End of file exception.
Code output: Start Hello world Catch Here File not found.
Answer: Option

Line 7 will cause a compiler error. The only legal statements after try blocks are either catch or finally statements.

Option B, C, and D are incorrect based on the program logic described above. If line 7 was removed, the code would compile and the correct answer would be Option B.

Can we use throw in try block?

I agree with Kalman.

"Assuming this block of code is placed into a class" is confusing.

I answered compilation error because this block cannot be put in a class.

"Assuming this block of code is placed into a class".

Indeed it must be placed into a method to work.

The first catch block causes compiler error as we are throwing FileNotFoundException it will not catch EOFException.

The first catch block will also cause compiler error. Because it will never be executed.

Yes, After try block the legal statement is catch or finally. !
