    Default Why it is showing error??

    Can any one please explain me why the statement given below is showing error.

    public static void main(String args[]){
    try{
    }
    catch(IOException t){ // line 4
    }
    }

    This code is showing error that, unreachable catch block. But this error wont be there if I am handling any other exception. The code given below is not showing any error at line 4.

    public static void main(String args[]){
    try{
    }
    catch(Exception t){ // line 4
    }
    }

    Can any one please explain it to me why this is happening.

    Thanks in advance..

    I think it's because you don't have any code that might throw an IO exception within try
    whereas Exception just covers everything
