Simple as it is, you can put the code using lambdas within try/catch block and work with expected exceptions like with any other ones. Here's simple example:

import java.util.ArrayList;

public class Lambda {
        
   ArrayList<Node> al;

   // inner class
	private class Node{ 
		double[] a;
		
	}
	
	public Lambda(){
		al = new ArrayList<Node>();
		al.add(new Node());
		al.add(new Node());
		al.add(new Node());
		al.add(new Node());
	}
	
	
	public static void main(String[] args) {
		
		Lambda l = new Lambda();
		try{				
			l.al.forEach( n ->
				System.out.println(n.a[2]*n.a[3])
				);
		} catch (java.lang.NullPointerException e) {
			System.out.println(e);
		}
		
		
	}

}

I am assuming you are referring to Streams in Java 8?
They do not play well with exceptions. However with Optional types you have the ability to throw exceptions e.g. Optional.orElseThrow(...)


However guddi9 this is a VERY advanced topic for you. I would not recommend you learn this just yet until you are fluent in java up to version 7.
This means being able to decipher if-else control logic without the need for venn diagrams.
