  What I Hate About Your Programming Language
Subject:   Java + Exceptions

Response to: Java + Exceptions

No.


All I'm saying is that sometimes I don't consider certain things exceptional. Java won't let me ignore them. I either have to deal with the exception or let it crash.


I don't like either option. If I know the file's not likely to be there and my program isn't going to crash if it's not there, it's not an exceptional condition. Why do I have to do busywork to make my intent clear?
