Subject Re: [jira] Updated: (MAHOUT-22) Several matrix exceptions are checked exceptions, but should be unchecked
Date Mon, 31 Mar 2008 16:01:40 GMT

My history is that I was once strongly in the "declare it" camp.

The example of Spring's JDBC support completely won me over to the other
side.  The arguments didn't convince me, but using their code did.  If you
don't expect the programmer to be able to do anything, and you expect them
to live in a framework (like the servlet or map/reduce) that doesn't declare
these exceptions, then you are just making code really complex when it
doesn't need to be.
