Uses of Class
java.lang.Error

Packages that use Error
java.awt Contains all of the classes for creating user interfaces and for painting graphics and images. 
java.io Provides for system input and output through data streams, serialization and the file system. 
java.lang Provides classes that are fundamental to the design of the Java programming language. 
java.lang.annotation Provides library support for the Java programming language annotation facility. 
java.lang.reflect Provides classes and interfaces for obtaining reflective information about classes and objects. 
java.nio.charset Defines charsets, decoders, and encoders, for translating between bytes and Unicode characters. 
java.rmi Provides the RMI package. 
java.util Contains the collections framework, legacy collection classes, event model, date and time facilities, internationalization, and miscellaneous utility classes (a string tokenizer, a random-number generator, and a bit array). 
java.util.zip Provides classes for reading and writing the standard ZIP and GZIP file formats. 
javax.management Provides the core classes for the Java Management Extensions. 
javax.management.remote Interfaces for remote access to JMX MBean servers. 
javax.xml.parsers Provides classes allowing the processing of XML documents. 
javax.xml.transform This package defines the generic APIs for processing transformation instructions, and performing a transformation from source to result. 
 

Uses of Error in java.awt
 

Subclasses of Error in java.awt
 class AWTError
          Thrown when a serious Abstract Window Toolkit error has occurred.
 

Uses of Error in java.io
 

Subclasses of Error in java.io
 class IOError
          Thrown when a serious I/O error has occurred.
 

Uses of Error in java.lang
 

Subclasses of Error in java.lang
 class AbstractMethodError
          Thrown when an application tries to call an abstract method.
 class AssertionError
          Thrown to indicate that an assertion has failed.
 class ClassCircularityError
          Thrown when a circularity has been detected while initializing a class.
 class ClassFormatError
          Thrown when the Java Virtual Machine attempts to read a class file and determines that the file is malformed or otherwise cannot be interpreted as a class file.
 class ExceptionInInitializerError
          Signals that an unexpected exception has occurred in a static initializer.
 class IllegalAccessError
          Thrown if an application attempts to access or modify a field, or to call a method that it does not have access to.
 class IncompatibleClassChangeError
          Thrown when an incompatible class change has occurred to some class definition.
 class InstantiationError
          Thrown when an application tries to use the Java new construct to instantiate an abstract class or an interface.
 class InternalError
          Thrown to indicate some unexpected internal error has occurred in the Java Virtual Machine.
 class LinkageError
          Subclasses of LinkageError indicate that a class has some dependency on another class; however, the latter class has incompatibly changed after the compilation of the former class.
 class NoClassDefFoundError
          Thrown if the Java Virtual Machine or a ClassLoader instance tries to load in the definition of a class (as part of a normal method call or as part of creating a new instance using the new expression) and no definition of the class could be found.
 class NoSuchFieldError
          Thrown if an application tries to access or modify a specified field of an object, and that object no longer has that field.
 class NoSuchMethodError
          Thrown if an application tries to call a specified method of a class (either static or instance), and that class no longer has a definition of that method.
 class OutOfMemoryError
          Thrown when the Java Virtual Machine cannot allocate an object because it is out of memory, and no more memory could be made available by the garbage collector.
 class StackOverflowError
          Thrown when a stack overflow occurs because an application recurses too deeply.
 class ThreadDeath
          An instance of ThreadDeath is thrown in the victim thread when the stop method with zero arguments in class Thread is called.
 class UnknownError
          Thrown when an unknown but serious exception has occurred in the Java Virtual Machine.
 class UnsatisfiedLinkError
          Thrown if the Java Virtual Machine cannot find an appropriate native-language definition of a method declared native.
 class UnsupportedClassVersionError
          Thrown when the Java Virtual Machine attempts to read a class file and determines that the major and minor version numbers in the file are not supported.
 class VerifyError
          Thrown when the "verifier" detects that a class file, though well formed, contains some sort of internal inconsistency or security problem.
 class VirtualMachineError
          Thrown to indicate that the Java Virtual Machine is broken or has run out of resources necessary for it to continue operating.
 

Uses of Error in java.lang.annotation
 

Subclasses of Error in java.lang.annotation
 class AnnotationFormatError
          Thrown when the annotation parser attempts to read an annotation from a class file and determines that the annotation is malformed.
 

Uses of Error in java.lang.reflect
 

Subclasses of Error in java.lang.reflect
 class GenericSignatureFormatError
          Thrown when a syntactically malformed signature attribute is encountered by a reflective method that needs to interpret the generic signature information for a type, method or constructor.
 

Uses of Error in java.nio.charset
 

Subclasses of Error in java.nio.charset
 class CoderMalfunctionError
          Error thrown when the decodeLoop method of a CharsetDecoder, or the encodeLoop method of a CharsetEncoder, throws an unexpected exception.
