Hello experts,

   I failed to put try catch for the IOEXCEPTION for in.readLine ... because I already have a tray-catch inside the while loop ... is there a way to solve this problem ? thanks.


  while ((str = in.readLine()) != null) {
     try {
     } catch {
     }

  }

its the readLine() method that throws the exception so the try catch needs to go around that line

  try {

   while ((str = in.readLine()) != null) {
       try {
       } catch (Exception ex) {
       }
    }

   } catch (IOException ex) {
       ex.printStackTrace();
   }
