Can anyone describe the difference between Java error handling and exception handling. I do not understand.

Do all errors and exceptions have to be handled by the programmer?

String []a = new String[10];
System.out.println(a[i]);

here if the value of i get more than 10 or less than 0 then program will crash.

error handling:
if(i < 10 && i >= 0)  System.out.println(a[i]);

exception handling:
try
{System.out.println(a[i]);}
catch(Exception e)
{System.out.println("ur array index is invalid");}

Exception handling is just one type of error handling (probably the best approach imo :)).

Other ways to indicate errors are just with variables that are set to a specific value if an error occurs during the execution of a program and are checked periodically.
