Getting the Stack Trace of an Exception : Exception « Development « Java Tutorial

public class Main {
  public static void main(String[] argv) throws Exception {

    try {
      int x = 1, y = 0;
      System.out.println(x / y);
    } catch (Throwable e) {
      StackTraceElement stack[] = e.getStackTrace();

      for (int i = 0; i < stack.length; i++) {
        String filename = stack[i].getFileName();
        if (filename == null) {
          System.out.println("filename is not available");
        String className = stack[i].getClassName();
        String methodName = stack[i].getMethodName();
        boolean isNativeMethod = stack[i].isNativeMethod();
        int line = stack[i].getLineNumber();
