Exceptions are special classes which describe exceptional states.

Naming

Exception identifiers begin with a capital uppercase letter, and are put in initial caps and always end with Exception, for example, com.sun.star.lang.IllegalArgumentException. Avoid abbreviations.

Usage

The OpenOffice.org API uses exceptions as the general error handling concept. However, the API should be designed that it is possible to avoid exceptions in typical error situations, such as opening non-existent files.
