A try is a near miss. It is a White attempt at a solution that fails to some Black defense. For a try to be thematic it should have a single defense and should also show the thematic play the problem was constructed to illustrate. The mating play that follows a try is known as the virtual play. The virtual play solution tree contains every continuation that leads to mate and therefore ignores the refutation. The refutation lines also constitute a tree of moves. A refutation tree consists of all the White moves that follow the refutation and the Black continuation that thwarts White's attempt at mate.

A Java keyword that defines a block of statements that may throw a Java language exception. If an exception is thrown, an optional catch block can handle specific exceptions thrown within the try block. Also, an optional finally block will be executed regardless of whether an exception is thrown or not.
The try keyword denotes a block of code that might throw an exception. If that code does indeed throw an exception, execution jumps to the appropriate catch or finally block. Check out this node for more information on exception handling.
The try keyword indicates a block of code to which subsequent catch and finally clauses apply. The try statement itself performs no special action. See the entries for catch and finally for more information on the try/ catch/ finally construct.
