Error handling doesn't always get the attention it deserves. In this course, Java Fundamentals: Exception Handling, you'll learn exactly how exception handling works in Java. First, you'll learn what error handling means, along with developing an understanding of the Java exception hierarchy. Next, you'll dive into the difference between checked and unchecked exceptions. Finally, you'll explore how to create custom exceptions. When you're finished with this course, you'll have a foundational knowledge of exception handling that will help as you move forward to build more robust programs.
Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Esteban Herrera. Welcome to my course Java Fundamentals: Exception Handling. I'm a certified Java programmer and architect. I have been working with Java for more than 10 years. I love the language and teaching all I know about it. I have seen that many times exception handling is not given the attention it deserves. Maybe you have used a try-catch block in your programs, know about check and uncheck exceptions, but do you really know why Java has the concept of check exceptions, how exceptions work under the hood, or when to create custom exceptions? In this course you are going to learn how exception handling works in Java. Some of the major topics that we will cover include, what is error handling, the Java exception hierarchy, the difference between checked and unchecked exceptions, and how to create custom exceptions. By the end of this course you'll know the basics of error handling and how exceptions work in Java. Before beginning the course, you should have a basic knowledge of Java version 7 or 8. I hope you join me on this journey to learn how exception handling works in Java with the Java Fundamentals: Exception Handling course at Pluralsight.
