General Categories of Exception

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Exception hierarchy divides into three broad categories:

1.Errors
2.Warnings
3.Notifications

There is a corresponding class for each of these, which represent the most general forms of each category of exception. These 3 exception classes can be caught and raised (though in the case of errors in particular, this is not good practice).
