Response to: Java: Catch all exceptions?

Sure, it is always about adding a sanity check. I believe that many if not all of the non-runtime checks are brain dead and cannot be ignored without severly breaking your program.


I may not get an interruption while waiting on a semaphore very often, but when it happens you better damn know that it did.

    Right, and you'd be darn sure you remember about it too.

    Same goes with broken inputs, bad filenames, and pretty much everything else that checked exceptions are used for.
