Some peculiarities about Java PrintWriter: PrintWriter never throws any exceptions. From JavaDoc : Methods in this class never throw I/O exceptions, although some of its constructors may. The client may inquire as to whether any errors have occurred by invoking checkError(). When error occurs, you'll never know anything more than that it occured, because checkError returns boolean. When a character is out of the range of the character encoding of the PrintWriter, it prints a question mark (?). But this is not an error. Test code: import java.io.*; public class TestPrintWri... Latin1 test result: java TestPrintWriter iso-8859-1 | od -bc 000000... UTF-8 test result: java TestPrintWriter utf-8 | od -bc 0000000 141... Also, the constructor throws a FileNotFoundException when you try to write to a...

This example demonstrates the general steps in creating a custom Java class loader. Normally a class loader would consult its parent class loader when asked to load a class. If it's not loaded by the parent class loader, then the class loader would try to load the class on its own. This class loader tries to load the requested class on its own first, and delegates to the parent only when a java.lang.SecurityException is thrown (which happens when it tries to load core Java classes such as java.lang.String ). The classes are loaded from CLASSPATH through the getResourceAsStream call. It's important to note that when a class is loaded with a certain class loader, all classes referenced from that class are also loaded through the...
