public class ConstraintViolationException
extends RuntimeException
An exception that represents the violation of a constraint. For example, a method argument not being within the proper integer range or a return value being null. The astute observer might ask "Why not just use IllegalArgumentException?" The short answer is that that exception is really only meant to be thrown when checking method inputs and we wanted something that could really be used anywhere.
