No. I was saying that sometimes code is written that throws exceptions
where the author knows that nobody wants to specifically catch this type
of exception.

For NullPointerException and ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException, no idea, I
could imagine it being useful when writing code that can recover from
programming errors. But despite from that, what's the use case for
making that difference or doing a catch(ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException
