Release 4.1: Java exceptions

The Java DbEnv constructor is now marked with "throws DbException". This means applications must construct DbEnv objects in a context where DbException throwables are handled (either in a try/catch block or in a method that propagates the exception up the stack). Note that previous versions of the Berkeley DB Java API could throw this exception from the constructor but it was not marked.
