Exception Declaration

An exception declaration declares the name of a user-defined exception. You can use the EXCEPTION_INIT pragma to assign this name to an internally defined exception.

Topics

Semantics

exception

Name of the exception that you are declaring.

Restriction on exception

You can use exception only in an EXCEPTION_INIT pragma, RAISE statement, RAISE_APPLICATION_ERROR invocation, or exception handler.

Caution:

Oracle recommends against using a predefined exception name for exception. For details, see "Redeclared Predefined Exceptions". For a list of predefined exception names, see Table 11-3.
