public class Error

Applications should not try to catch errors since they indicate abnormal conditions. An abnormal condition is something which should not occur, or which should not be recovered from. This latter category includes ThreadDeath and AssertionError.

A method is not required to declare any subclass of Error in its throws clause which might be thrown but not caught while executing the method.
