Public Constructors

public IllegalArgumentException ()

Constructs an IllegalArgumentException with no detail message.

public IllegalArgumentException (String s)

Constructs an IllegalArgumentException with the specified detail message.

Parameters
s the detail message.

public IllegalArgumentException (String message, Throwable cause)

Constructs a new exception with the specified detail message and cause.

Note that the detail message associated with cause is not automatically incorporated in this exception's detail message.

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

public IllegalArgumentException (Throwable cause)

Constructs a new exception with the specified cause and a detail message of (cause==null ? null : cause.toString()) (which typically contains the class and detail message of cause). This constructor is useful for exceptions that are little more than wrappers for other throwables (for example, PrivilegedActionException).

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