Constructor Detail

NoSuchAlgorithmException

public NoSuchAlgorithmException()
Constructs a NoSuchAlgorithmException with no detail message. A detail message is a String that describes this particular exception.


NoSuchAlgorithmException

public NoSuchAlgorithmException(String msg)
Constructs a NoSuchAlgorithmException with the specified detail message. A detail message is a String that describes this particular exception, which may, for example, specify which algorithm is not available.

Parameters:
msg - the detail message.

NoSuchAlgorithmException

public NoSuchAlgorithmException(String message,
                                Throwable cause)
Creates a NoSuchAlgorithmException with the specified detail message and cause.

Parameters:
message - the detail message (which is saved for later retrieval by the Throwable.getMessage() method).
cause - the cause (which is saved for later retrieval by the Throwable.getCause() method). (A null value is permitted, and indicates that the cause is nonexistent or unknown.)
Since:
1.5

NoSuchAlgorithmException

public NoSuchAlgorithmException(Throwable cause)
Creates a NoSuchAlgorithmException with the specified cause and a detail message of (cause==null ? null : cause.toString()) (which typically contains the class and detail message of cause).

Parameters:
cause - the cause (which is saved for later retrieval by the Throwable.getCause() method). (A null value is permitted, and indicates that the cause is nonexistent or unknown.)
Since:
1.5
