'throw' caught by containing 'try' statement

Reports throw statements whose exceptions are always caught by containing try statements.

Using throw statements as a "goto" to change the local flow of control is confusing and results in poor performance.


try { if (!Files.isDirectory(PROJECTS)) { throw new IllegalStateException("Directory not found."); // warning: 'throw' caught by containing 'try' statement } ... } catch (Exception e) { LOG.error("run failed"); }

Use the Ignore rethrown exceptions option to ignore exceptions that are rethrown.
