handleable exception

Exception that can be handled in the program using the statements TRY - CATCH - ENDTRY without causing a runtime error. Handleable exceptions are based on exception classes and are realized by exception objects. A handleable exception is raised either by the ABAP runtime environment or by the statement RAISE EXCEPTION in a program, or by the addition THROW in a conditional expression. Before the introduction of class-based exceptions, handleable exceptions could be defined only in the interfaces of function modules and methods themselves and raised using RAISE. Predefined handleable exceptions occurred as catchable runtime errors (now obsolete).
