Nah. Idiomatic way would be declare the exception and
let it trickle through the invocation method (infamous

But you still didn't point out how Perl equivalent is
supposed to be superior. Having odd notation for
specifying encoding (that magic place for "utf-8")
hardly seems superior to Java: in both cases you can
omit the explicit encoding declaration, and get
something you generally don't want.

I fail to see the huge deficiencies of JDK APIs in
this example (or the other ones included): Java is not
designed for single-line scripting. Perl (and host of
other languages is). So why do you insist on "proving"
suckiness of JDK via examples that are things one very
rarely uses Java for?
