• Exception and Error both are sub classes of java.lang.Throwable class.
  • We can handle Exceptions at runtime but Errors we can not handle.

  • Exceptions are the objects representing the logical errors that occur at run time and makes JVM enters into the state of  "ambiguity".
  • The objects which are automatically created by the JVM for representing these run time errors are known as Exceptions.
  • An Error is a subclass of Throwable that indicates serious problems that a reasonable application should not try to catch. Most such errors are abnormal conditions.

  • Error are by default unchecked exceptions.
  • Exceptions are related to application where ad Error are related to environment in which application is running.

  • Exception are of type java.lang.Exception
  • Errors are of type java.lang.Error
  • Error will run at run time.
  • In Exceptions Checked Exceptions will known to compiler so we need to handle these exceptions at compile time itself otherwise compile time Error will come.
