Prohibited exception thrown

Reports throw statements that throw an inappropriate exception. For example an exception can be inappropriate because it is overly generic, such as java.lang.Exception or


void setup(Mode mode) { if (mode == null) throw new RuntimeException("Problem during setup"); // warning: Prohibited exception 'RuntimeException' thrown ... }

Use the Prohibited exceptions list to specify which exceptions should be reported.
