Throwing exception in a try block?

is it a bad programming design to throw exception in the try block then
catch it??

John,
it seems that this programmer is part of you group. Rather than spending
time in here, walk across to her cube and have a polite discussion about the
tenets of good exception practices. I think your approach is not the best
because it doesn't correct the situation.

It depends on what you're doing and why you're doing it. If you're
catching exceptions so that you can do some sort of rollback or cleanup
and then throw (or rethrow) an exception then it could be a fine design.
If you're throwing and catching as a neat-o way of passing data then, it's
a bad design.

What are you doing?

The String returns and I am able to run .split() on it. At some point after that (this seems to vary), my program simply exits during the middle of execution. I've peppered the code with println() statements and the program appears to be exiting after a...

Hello, I maintain an application that pulls data from a web service and writes it to an Excel sheet. Originally, the app used OleDb to write the Excel. Exports ran fine except that some text fields were truncated due to the 255 character limit of the Jet Excel driver. To overcome this limit, I decided to just generate CSV directly. This is where my trouble began. First I tried the StreamWriter class, implemented as per the "How to:
