    Question Exception Handling

    Hello all,

    First of all sorry for the indescriptive title, but I don't really know if the issue is with code or IDE, and rather why it's happening.

    Qustion: Why is this giving me an error? I'd expect that I should be able to print the name of the exception with out issues with this code.
     
    try{
    //code
    }catch (Exception e){
    	System.out.println("Error .. " e.toString());//line 25
    }
     
    Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Error: Unresolved compilation problem: 
    Syntax error on token "e", delete this token

    at HR20ID3Reader.main(HR20ID3Reader.java:25)




    Eclipse suggests that I use this code instead:

    try{
    //code
    }catch (Exception e){
    	System.out.println("Error .. " .toString());//line 25
    }
     
    Error .. 



    This output is lacking the name of the exception.

    Default Re: Exception Handling

    System.out.println("Error .. " e.toString());

    String addition...I believe you want to add the 2 strings together?

    "Error..." + e.toString()

    You might consider using the e.printStackTrace() as it provides a lot more detail as to the exception, which oftentimes comes in very handy
