    Default Does this line of code need any exception handling?

    java.io.File file = new java.io.File("student.txt");

    I think it doesn't because it'd be kind of impossible for "fileNotFoundException" to be thrown considering that you're creating the file....

    What does the API tell you?

    Errr....where do I find that again?

    --- Update ---

    Well they talk a lot about exception handling on the internet, but they don't talk much about how it relates to files.

    And in the few instances where they do talk about file, nothing seems to relate to my question.....

    The API is here: File (Java Platform SE 7 )

    Each method description tells you whether it throws an Exception.
