Thank you for your comments

CEHJ,
No it isn't homework. I programmed C++ and Visual Basic for some years and I start Java for two weeks.
I like two dimentional arrays.
I intersted in Exceptions that I didn't use it in C++.
I wrote this example myself to knows about Exceptions more.

Thanks

Hi,
In the

// Section 1
          System.out.println("In Section 1");
          for (int i = 0; i <= 3; i++) {
               for (int j = 0; j<=2; j++) {
                    try {
                         System.out.println(intArray[i][j]);
                    } catch (Exception e) {
                         System.out.println("N/A");
                    }
               }
          }

I want to exit outer loop whenever rich Exception.
Also in the

          try {
               for (int i = 0; i <= 3; i++)
                    for (int j = 0; j<=2; j++)
                         System.out.println(intArray[i][j]);
          } catch (Exception e) {
               System.out.println("N/A");
          }

I want to contine next value of i, j whenever rich Exception.

The first gets out completely at i == 2, the second passes control back to the outer loop at j == 1:


  static void breakOuter() {
    System.out.println("In Section 1");
    OUTER:
    for (int i = 0; i <= 3; i++) {
         for (int j = 0; j<=2; j++) {
              try {
                   System.out.println(i + "," + j);
                   if (i == 2) throw new RuntimeException("breaking");

              } catch (Throwable e) {
                   break OUTER;
              }
         }
    }
  }


  static void breakInner() {
    System.out.println("In Section 1");
    for (int i = 0; i <= 3; i++) {
         INNER:
         for (int j = 0; j<=2; j++) {
              try {
                   System.out.println(i + "," + j);
                   if (j == 1) throw new RuntimeException("breaking");

              } catch (Throwable e) {
                   break INNER;
              }
         }
    }
  }

Hello,
I don't know what elements of array are N/A. Some random holes are in array list. I want to find those holes. (I print N/A for those holes) Using (i == 1) or (j ==2) means that you know place of holes!!

Thanks

Hi,

you use

if (j == 1) throw new RuntimeException("breaking");

in your code. Why (j == 1)? Because you noticed:

          intArray[0] = new int[1];
          intArray[1] = new int[3];
          intArray[2] = new int[2];
          intArray[3] = new int[3];

But the above array is only a test bench. So I want to use
'ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException' to find where we don't allocate memory for array.

>>Why (j == 1)?

Just as an example. ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException will be fine to check the bounds - just change it.

Hello,
I modified my code by help of your code. Now it has four sections:

1. "Section 1 - CEHJ"
2. "Section 1 - FarzadA"
3. "Section 2 - FarzadA"
4. "Section 2 - CEHJ"

"Section 1 - CEHJ" is as same as "Section 1 - FarzadA" it is ok and thanks.

"Section 2 - CEHJ" is as same as "Section 2 - FarzadA" but
"Section 2 - CEHJ" doesn't continue to end of code and breaks the Application.

This is the main problem that caused to I ask this question.
Would you please help me?

That's because you don't have an outer exception block. The exception thrown here:

>>
                         throw new RuntimeException("breaking");
                    } catch (Throwable e) {
                         break OUTER;
                    }
>>

will NOT be caught in the catch(Throwable... statement as that is not a block. The exception is therefore uncaught, interrupting the program flow. In order for it to continue, you'd have to have:

          System.out.println("In Section 1 - CEHJ");
          OUTER:
          for (int i = 0; i <= 3; i++) {
               for (int j = 0; j<=2; j++) {
                    try {
                        try {
                             System.out.println("intArray["+i+"]["+j+"]="+intArray[i][j]);
                        } catch (ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException e) {
                             System.out.println("intArray["+i+"]["+j+"]=N/A");
                             throw new RuntimeException("Index out of bounds - going into outer exception block...");
                        }
                    }
                    catch (Throwable e) {
                           System.err.println("Throwable caught here. Message was: '" + e.getMessage() + "'");
                           break OUTER;
                    }
               }
          }


Or, more simply:

          System.out.println("In Section 1 - CEHJ");
          OUTER:
          for (int i = 0; i <= 3; i++) {
               for (int j = 0; j<=2; j++) {
                    try {
                         System.out.println("intArray["+i+"]["+j+"]="+intArray[i][j]);
                    } catch (ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException e) {
                         System.out.println("intArray["+i+"]["+j+"]=N/A");
                         break OUTER;
                    }
               }
          }
