Evolution of Exceptions

Project Idea

Exceptions in Java provide a powerful mechanism for error handling. Developers can define their own project-specific exceptions or rely on predefined ones in the Java API.

In this project we would like to understand the evolution of exception definitions and usage throughout a project lifetime. How often do developers define custom exceptions? Do they introduce custom exceptions in the beginning or later in the project lifecycle? What are the actions associated with the caught custom exceptions? These are some of the questions we seek answers to.
