Subject [GitHub] commons-lang pull request: Ability to throw checked exceptions wit...
Date Sat, 20 Jun 2015 16:12:02 GMT
Github user gzak commented on the pull request:
    Why though? If you're using one of those methods, you're essentially saying "I don't care
about this error, just raise it to the top-level handler". At the top, you generally just
catch Throwables and log the error without actually doing anything (presumably, all the finally
blocks along the way took care of recovery). This just cleans up the stack trace by removing
one layer of unnecessary wrapping.
    Another thing to keep in mind: Scala and other newer JVM languages already disregard checked
exceptions, so you can already find yourself in situations where a checked exception gets
to your top-level handler in Java when interfacing with other libraries (I've encountered
it myself). This just brings Java closer to parity with other more modern languages.

If your project is set up for it, you can reply to this email and have your
reply appear on GitHub as well. If your project does not have this feature
enabled and wishes so, or if the feature is enabled but not working, please
