Hi, I'm trying to put the following code in a try/catch however I keep getting the compile error.

I get this compile error:

JavaTester.java:22: error: exception Exception is never thrown in body of corresponding try statement } catch(Exception ex) { ^ 1 error

I've compiled it locally and it runs, although I removed the InputStream and copyFile method.

CodeChallenge.java
// assetManager, assetName, and fileToWrite have been initialized elsewhere
try
{
InputStream in = assetManager.open(assetName);
FileOutputStream out = new FileOutputStream(fileToWrite);
copyFile(in, out);
}
catch(Exception e)
{
  e.printStackTrace();
}

Hey Guy!

I'm getting the same problem on my side as well - there must be an issue with this Code Challenge.

I've gone ahead and reported this to the Treehouse Support team and will post back onto here if I get any updates about this for you (It shouldn't be long - they usually respond pretty quickly)

Speak to you soon and sorry about the issue!
