The below program works fine, but I want to add data exception using try and catch, can anyone please help how and form where I can start it?

}

ehm ...

try{
//yourCode
}
catch(YourSpecificException yse){
// handleException
}
catch(YourOtherSpecificException yose){
// handleException
}
catch(Exception e){
// handle all other exceptions, just in case
}

Thanks, below is what I did, the try and catch works but I want to loop the program if the input error is occurred, I have tried and having this one error: C:\java-workspace\ElseElseIf.java:46: error:

int cannot be dereferenced exitChoice = input.next(); 1 error

for which I have no idea, any help will be appreciated!

}

Then what can be assigned? Can you please help with looping the program again if error is caught?

create a new String object and add that int to the value.
or just putting: String.valueOf(input);
would do the trick.

Please ignore my previous post - brain was in reverse. Try this instead:

exitChoice = input.next();

input is an integer variable, so doesn't have a next() method. Looks like you confused "input" and "scanner" when you typed that line.

Edited 5 Years Ago by JamesCherrill: n/a

I'm still confused can you please write the actual part of the code please?

Thanks all for the help!! Really appreciate it... But still facing the problem, I wanted it to loop until user inputs the valid input, the program below catches the error but is not looping again. PLEASE HELP.

Thanks for the help, I tried removing the

return;

statement form the catch block, but that gave me below mentioned errors:

        largest = number1;
                  ^

        if(largest < number2)
                     ^
C:\java-workspace\ElseElseIf.java:64: error: variable number3 might not have been initialized
        if(largest < number3)
                     ^

        if(largest < number4)

        if(largest < number5)
                     ^
5 errors

initialize default values before the try-catch block, or ==>

public static void main(String[] args){
try{
// All your code here
}
catch(Exception e){
System.out.println("Error: " + e.getMessage());
}
}
