29.15 java.text.ParseException (JDK 1.1)

This exception signals that a string had an incorrect format and could not be parsed. It is typically thrown by the parse() or parseObject() methods of Format and its subclasses, but is also thrown by certain methods in the java.text package that are passed patterns or other rules in string form. The getErrorOffset() method of this class returns the character position at which the parsing error occurred in the offending string.

public class ParseException extends Exception {
    // Public Constructor
            public ParseException(String s, int errorOffset);
    // Public Instance Methods
            public int getErrorOffset();
