[concurrency-interest] Thread interruption protocol: InterruptedException is a "checked" exception, correct?

Oh, I see Constructor.newInstance() as opposed to Class.newInstance().
But this probably irrelevant here as the stack trace fragment I
produced in my previous mail appears to show that the exception is
from Class.forName(String). Also, we call Constructor.newInstance()
instead of Class.newInstance():

	    Class<?> cl = Class.forName(name);
	    Constructor constr = cl.getConstructor(argcl);
	    return constr.newInstance(args);

I was just trying to apply Tom's input about passing exception
checking to the case we appear to have.

Thanks for making me aware of the difference anyway.
