- All Implemented Interfaces:
- Direct Known Subclasses:
public class UnknownEntityException extends RuntimeException
Superclass of exceptions which indicate that an unknown kind of entity was encountered. This situation can occur if the language evolves and new kinds of constructs are introduced. Subclasses of this exception may be thrown by visitors to indicate that the visitor was created for a prior version of the language.
- API Note:
- A common superclass for exceptions specific to different kinds of unknown entities allows a single catch block to easily provide uniform handling of those related conditions.
