In Defence of Java Checked Exceptions

Categories: Java, Programming

At my current place of work, there has been some debate about the use of checked vs unchecked exceptions in Java.

While checked exceptions do have their problems, simply replacing their use 1:1 with unchecked exceptions is NOT a good idea IMO; I have written up my thoughts here.

What was originally intended as a short text grew somewhat, looking at exception-handling and error-handling in general in several languages.
