    Default exception error in a ActionListener class

    I am having an issue with one of the GUIs I am currently working on. The GUI itself works fine, but the actionlistener tied to it, keeps coming up with exception errors.

    The listener is used to create an instance of a seperate class that connects to, accesses, and returns data from a database. All of the database functions are kept within the class, and all its exceptions are handled, etc. However, when I try to code the listener on the gui side, I keep getting compile errors asking for the exceptions being handled in the db class to be added to the actionlistener. If I add them, I get more compiler errors stating that they are not compatible with actionlistener.actionperformed. Can anyone shed some light on this problem?

    I'm a bit confused. Are you getting compile-time errors or run-time errors? It seems like you might have to post some code and the error messages themselves.

    I guess you trying to handle those exceptions with throws.. well you can't due to overriding.
    Just try to use try and catch.

    ActionListeners are not allowed to throw checked exceptions so you have to handle them yourself.
