Hi while implementing try catch block I observed this

try {
date = formatter.parse(str);
} catch (ParseException e1) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e1.printStackTrace();
};


No error with };

whereas
try {
date = formatter.parse(str);
}; catch (ParseException e1) {
// TODO Auto-generated catch block
e1.printStackTrace();
};

It showed error
Can anyone explain this concept? ,What is the significance of semicolon after parenthesis

Those aren't parentheses, they're braces. The semicolon ends the statement, and 'try' must be paired with 'catch' or 'finally'. The first case is not an error, it just does nothing useful there.
