In a previous post, I mentioned that I’ve filed a feature request on sun’s developer network for an option to turn off those [expletive deleted] checked exceptions in Java. Well, I had a chance to ask Peter Ahé (lead developer on sun’t java compiler) about it and he didn’t think very much of the idea. Darn. I guess a solution to this isn’t around the corner.
Update: The feature request been accepted as RFE 6376696.
