Response to: Java + Exceptions

You are missing the point - a user should never see a stack trace. If you think missing the file is a good time to bail on the program than catch it and do a System.exit.

If you are selectivly able to ignore exceptions you wind up either missing important cases or writing catchal (like ... or Exception) and handling exceptions it a totaly wrong manener.

You should not be using exceptions to automagically end the program - that is the height of lazyness.
