Android Android Data Persistence Introduction to Data Persistence Handling an Exception

Try / Catch Exception issues

In the handling an exception challenge I am receiving the below error:

JavaTester.java:44: error: unreported exception IOException; must be caught or declared to be thrown copyFile(in, out);} ^ 1 error

my code is:

// 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(); }

Can anyone direct me to where I can find more information to determine what I am doing wrong?

Sorry all! Looks like I introduced some sort of bug in that challenge. This should now be fixed.

I'm having the exact same issue using the same code, which I believe is correct.
