Scala - Divide By Zero Exception

Here, we will create a simple program to demonstrate the "divide by zero" exception. And, we will use try and catch blocks. The source code written inside the try block may generate an exception. Then we handle generated exceptions in the catch block.

Scala code to handle Divide By Zero exception

The source code to handle the Divide By Zero exception is given below. The given program is compiled and executed on the ubuntu 18.04 operating system successfully.

// Scala program to handle Divide By Zero exception

object Sample {
  // Main method
  def main(args: Array[String]) {
    var num1: Int = 0;
    var num2: Int = 10;
    var res: Int = 0;

    try {
      res = num2 / num1;
    } catch {
      case a: ArithmeticException => {
        println("Divide By Zero Exception occurred.")


Divide By Zero Exception occurred.


In the above program, we used an object-oriented approach to create the program. And, we created a singleton object Sample and defined the main() function. The main() function is the entry point for the program.

In the main() function, we created three integer variables num1, num2, res, that are initialized with 0, 10, 0 respectively.

The below statement generated divide by zero exception because the value of num1 is 0.

        res = num2/num1;

Then generated exception is caught in the catch block and prints an appropriate message on the console screen.
