handled by some catcher; though it is possible they may not be caught and
therefore could result in a dead thread. Before catching an exception it is
must to be thrown first whether by the JVM or by the user itself. So there
must be a code somewhere in
the program to handle that exception.

The type of the reference must be derived from the Throwable class or one of its subclasses.
