||What I Hate About Your Programming Language|
Response to: Java problems...
|Just a note on checked exceptions. It may be annoying to have to declare everything in simple code that doesn't care about errors, but when you scale up to a large code base maintained by multiple developers, and requiring sophisticated error handling, checked exceptions are a major time-saver. I work on C++ code that makes heavy use of exceptions, and we could probably have saved weeks of developer time if C++ could do proper exception checking in the compiler.|
