    The keyword throw is used to actually cause an exception to occur. It must be used with an instance of a Throwable.

    e.g. throw new NullPointerException()

    The keyword throws precedes a list of exceptions that a method might throw. It is required for checked exceptions which have not been handed in the method, but you can also list unchecked exceptions.

    The unchecked exceptions are RuntimeException, Error, and their subclasses.
