I would like to discuss validity of this rule in my case:
“Exception” should not be caught when not required by called methods
In general I understand what is it for, but in my situation it seems it shouldn’t be fired (or I’m doing something in a bad way).
I have a Swing application in which I use
It performs some calculations and calls other part to update GUI.
The thing is, I already had several situations when the exception thrown from
done() method was silently ignored - the thread was just finishing. That’s why I added catching
Exception there. It’s the last part of this thread task, and I just want to log this exception, so I (or the user) know that something went wrong.
And it’s hard to predict what may be thrown there (I hope nothing ;).
It looks for me like it’s impossible. It’s just I would always like to be informed about such cases.
