    Default throws Exception


    While declaring objects of some classes, like FileInputStream, FileOutputStream, ObjectInputStream etc, we need to declare them in a try catch block. Otherwise we get exception saying Unhandled exception. One other way is to use throws exception with the method name in which we are declaring the object. For example:

    Java Code:
    public void myFunction() throws Exception{
    FileInputStream f_in = new FileInputStream("C:\\");
    Which is the right way?

    Thanks in advance.

    Both are right. However, you will have to use a try/catch block eventually. If you tack on a 'throws Exceptioin' to your method signature, you will have to put all calls to that method in a try/catch block.
