Subject [jira] Commented: (MATH-195) Inconsistencies in the Exception hierarchy
Date Thu, 01 Jul 2010 20:35:50 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-195?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12884408#action_12884408
] 

Joerg Schaible commented on MATH-195:
-------------------------------------

You can also use unchecked exceptions in the throw clause itself (like it is done e.g. in
Class.getMethod() with the SecurityException) with will force most IDEs to add the exception
automatically into the javadoc as @throws and they will create also often catch cases.

>                 Key: MATH-195

>             Project: Commons Math
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 1.1, 1.2, 2.0, Nightly Builds

> I think there are some inconsistencies in the hierarchy of exceptions used by the Commons
Math library which could easily be fixed:
>   - org.apache.commons.math.linear.MatrixIndexException should really be a subclass of
>     java.lang.IndexOutOfBoundsException.
>   - Either org.apache.commons.math.linear.InvalidMatrixException should be checked or
>     org.apache.commons.math.random.NotPositiveDefiniteMatrixException and
>     org.apache.commons.math.geometry.NotARotationMatrixException should be unchecked,
but in any case the latter two
>     should be subclasses of the former. An unchecked InvalidMatrixException should probably
be a subclass of
>     java.lang.ArithmeticException while a checked InvalidMatrixException should be a
subclass of
>     org.apache.commons.math.MathException.
