There's no propagation. I cannot ask Jeha to handle certain exceptions only.
This depends on the ones I have catched. If I catch Exception directly then
all is passed to my handler. From within the handler I can only throw (or
rethrow) a RuntimeException or return one specific checked exception as
result ...

...  which I have to cast before throwing it to respect the method's
signature. To "propagate" a RuntimeException or specific checked
exceptions, I have to write catch handlers for the ones I wanna handle and
call the Jeha handler in all those catch blocks. And that is the time where
I ask myself what I gain ;-)
