Class AssertionFailure

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class AssertionFailure
extends ConsistencyException

The exception thrown by Debug.expect when an assertion is false.

AssertionFailure is a RuntimeException and so does not need to be listed in the "throws" clauses of method definitions. One reason for that is to avoid discouraging the use of assertions. If AssertionFailure had to be declared, then adding an assertion in a method that had none before would require nonlocal changes in the code.
