can we have try without catch block in java
Yes, you can have a
try block without a corresponding
catch block, but it must be followed by either a
catch block or a
finally block. The
finally block, if used, will always be executed, regardless of whether an exception is thrown or not. This is useful for cleanup operations, even if no exception occurs.
Here’s an example demonstrating a
try block without a
catch block, followed by a
In this example, the
try block contains code that attempts to perform an illegal operation (dividing by zero), which results in an
ArithmeticException. There is no
catch block to handle this specific exception. However, the
finally block will still be executed after the
try block, allowing you to perform cleanup operations or any necessary tasks.
When you run the above code, it will throw an
ArithmeticException and execute the
finally block, producing the following output:
As you can see, the
finally block is always executed, providing a way to ensure specific actions are taken, even in the presence of exceptions.
