public class ExceptionInInitializerError extends LinkageError
ExceptionInInitializerErroris thrown to indicate that an exception occurred during evaluation of a static initializer or the initializer for a static variable.
As of release 1.4, this exception has been retrofitted to conform to
the general purpose exception-chaining mechanism. The "saved throwable
object" that may be provided at construction time and accessed via
getException() method is now known as the cause,
and may be accessed via the
Throwable.getCause() method, as well
as the aforementioned "legacy method."
