dev2dev: Effective Java Exceptions – Although the Java exception model has generated spirited discussion during its lifetime, it provides excellent value when it is applied correctly. Using the Java exception model properly will keep your application simple, maintainable, and correct.
Neal Gafter’s blog: Removing Language Features? – I believe Java could be simplified by treating all exception types as unchecked without breaking existing code. This could also result in a simplification of future language extensions and APIs. But would the language be better off w/o checked exceptions?
I am a total Java geek that lives in Brookfield - WI (Milwaukee), making my living as an architect/developer, spending all my time with Java, J2EE, OO, Linux, and open source. In my spare time, when I am not in front of my computers, I spend every other minute with my other loves: My wife and daughter, books, music, guitars, Formula-1 racing and SCI-FI shows like StarGate and others.
At work, I spend most of my time dealing with architectural and security issues with plenty of work and personal play-time going into discovering the latest tool, framework, etc that will allow us to work faster, smarter and deliver better results. A lot of my time is also spent fire-fighting issues and coming up with solutions to interesting problems. :)
