When an exception occurs while executing the code, the rest of the code after exception won't get executed. In order to execute the rest of the code, we've to handle the code that is giving exception using try and catch blocks.
int num = 50/0; //Code throwing arithmetic exception is placed in the try block
catch (Exception e)
System.out.println("Exception Details - " + e);
Lets implement this on Eclipse IDE:
1. Open the class throwing exception and write the code giving exception in the try block as shown below:
2. View the error displayed at the end of try block as shown below:
3. Lets write some code to handle the exception occurred in the catch block as shown below (Catch should be written only after the try block i.e. catch block cannot be before the try block):
5. Observe that the output is displayed in the console as shown below:

Though there is much to be learned in Exceptional Handling. We've learnt enough required for Selenium Automation ( i.e. try and catch blocks and Exception class).
