I haven't done that course and can't find where he says it in the video linked above, but maybe he meant that using try-catch in JUnit tests is the old way of testing exceptions. With JUnit, you can also use annotations or the ExpectedException rule for example. I'm not sure either.

i think ur right i was confused. in which course u are?

I'm finishing up the Java Beginner track. I'm on Data Structures right now. But I've done other Java courses in the past.
