If you want to catch 3 types of exceptions, in other words, you will have 3 catch blocks, which one will you type first, the most specific exception? or the most general exception?

see example here:

File prefsFile = new File(prefsFilename);

try
{
    readPreferences(prefsFile);
}
catch (FileNotFoundException e)
{
    // alert the user that the specified file
    // does not exist
}
catch (EOFException e)
{
    // alert the user that the end of the file
    // was reached
}
catch (ObjectStreamException e)
{
    // alert the user that the file is corrupted
}
catch (IOException e)
{
    // alert the user that some other I/O
    // error occurred
}
