    Default Help with sqlite please

    Hi. I am new to this forum. I haven't done any Java programming in close to 15 years. I am trying to write a class to connect to a sqlite db. I am trying to personalize some existing API software for a popular online trading platform. I have been following the wikibooks JDBC sqlite tutorial. I pretty much copied the example class from there:

    package com.ib.client.examples;

    import java.sql.*;

    * @author Trader
    public class Mydb extends DatabaseInterface{

    public Mydb (String sDriverKey, String sUrlKey) {
    init (sDriverKey, sUrlKey);

    public void init(String sDriverVar, String sUrlVar) throws Exception {
    I am running into this error:

    error: unreported exception Exception; must be caught or declared to be thrown

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    Please read the forum rules. Double posting is not allowed (your duplicate post has been removed), and please wrap your code in the code tags.

    error: unreported exception Exception; must be caught or declared to be thrown
    The error pretty much says it all. The code throws an Exception, which you must catch or declare thrown so that it may be caught. Surround your code with a try/catch/finally, or have your method throw the appropriate Exception. See http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutori...al/exceptions/
