In this tutorial we will discuss about UnsupportedOperationException in Java. This exception is thrown to indicate that the requested operation is not supported. This exception extends the RuntimeException class and thus, belongs to those exceptions that can be thrown during the operation of the Java Virtual Machine (JVM). It is an unchecked exception and thus, it does not need to be declared in a method’s or a constructor’s throws clause. Moreover, the UnsupportedOperationException exists since the 1.2 version of Java.
