Learn all about Java Exception Handling and write Java code with confidence!
OpenJDk or Open Java Development Kit is a free, open-source framework of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (or Java SE). It contains the virtual machine, the Java Class Library, and the Java compiler. The difference between the Oracle OpenJDK and Oracle JDK is that OpenJDK is a source code reference point for the open-source model. Simultaneously, the Oracle JDK is a continuation or advanced model of the OpenJDK, which is not open source and requires a license to use.
In this article, we will be installing OpenJDK on Centos 8.

When and how to use checked and unchecked exceptions
Since the invention of the Java language, there has been a long-standing debate about checked versus unchecked/runtime exceptions. Some people argue that checked exceptions promote a better design. Others feel that checked exceptions get in the way, especially as systems mature and refactor over time, and therefore unchecked exceptions are better. The Effective Java Exceptions article settles this debate once and for all: both checked and unchecked exceptions are acceptable, and each has its purpose within an application. I highly recommend reading that article. I will refer back to its concepts and terminology going forward.

The throws keyword in Java allows developers to check their code for invalid entry and prepare further steps if an exception occurs.
Learn about the throws keyword in Java with examples. In simple words, the throws keyword is used to declare an exception. It gives an indication to the developer about the exception that may occur. It is better for the developer to provide the exception handling code so that the normal flow of the program is maintained. There are two ways to handle the code:
What will happen if you do not handle the code? You will get a compilation error if the exception is a checked exception.

In Java, the program that is coded by the programmer can be used in a very unexpected way by the user, due to this, the program may fail in different sort of ways during execution. The main objective of a programmer should be to write a code that does not fail unexpectedly. That unexpected stopping of the program while execution is known as an exception, it disrupts the normal execution flow of a program.
An exception is an event that interrupts the normal flow of execution. It is a disruption during the execution of the Java program. The Exception Handling in Java is one of the powerful mechanisms to handle runtime errors so that the normal flow of the application can be maintained. Let’s see the difference between Error v/s Exception.

According to some surveys, such as JetBrains’s great survey, Java 8 is currently the most used version of Java, despite being a 2014 release.
What you are reading is one in a series of articles titled ‘Going beyond Java 8,’ inspired by the contents of my book, Java for Aliens. These articles will guide you step-by-step through the most important features introduced to the language, starting from version 9. The aim is to make you aware of how important it is to move forward from Java 8, explaining the enormous advantages that the latest versions of the language offer.
In this article, we will talk about the most important new feature introduced with Java 10. Officially called local variable type inference, this feature is better known as the **introduction of the word **
var. Despite the complicated name, it is actually quite a simple feature to use. However, some observations need to be made before we can see the impact that the introduction of the word
var has on other pre-existing characteristics.
