3395153 - How to Monitor Runtime Exception in Commerce Cloud Using Dynatrace


Java runtime exceptions are a type of exception that occurs during the execution of a program. They are typically caused by programming errors, such as an attempt to divide by zero or access an array index that is out of bounds.

Unlike checked exceptions, which are intended to be handled by the developer, runtime exceptions are considered unanticipated and therefore do not need to be explicitly caught or declared in a method’s signature.

One of Java’s most common runtime exceptions is the NullPointerException, which occurs when an application attempts to call a method or access a field on a null object reference. This can occur when a developer forgets to initialize an object or when an object is assigned a null value.

Another common runtime exceptoins is StackOverflowError, which indicates that the call stack (the memory allocated for method call frames) has exceeded its limit. This error typically occurs when a program engages in excessive or infinite recursion without a proper base case to terminate the recursion. 
a StackOverflowError is a serious runtime exception that can harm an application by causing it to terminate unexpectedly and potentially leading to data loss or corruption. It's crucial to prevent such errors by designing your code with proper recursion limits and exit conditions.

Developers need to understand the causes of these and other runtime exceptions to prevent them from occurring in their code. This can be done through careful testing and debugging and using tools such as code analysis tools to identify potential issues.

In general, runtime exceptions should be considered a sign of a bug in the program and should be fixed as soon as they are discovered. Developers should always strive to write robust, reliable code that can gracefully handle unexpected situations.

It’s important to handle these exceptions properly to prevent the application from crashing and unpredictable result.
