StringIndexOutOfBoundsException when calling

 Hi all,
I faced really nasty problem these days. I am executing the following

    String destination = "";// this string is initialized before
coming here

    URL url = null;
    InputStream inputStream = null;
    try {
        url = new URL(destination);
        inputStream = url.openStream();
        // process the input stream
    catch (IOException e) {
        // handle the exception
    } finally {
        if (inputStream != null) {

This was working fine so far, but i start to receive to following
exception -

    Exception: java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException
    Stack Trace :

I can't figure out for which values of 'destination' this exception is
thrown but i think this should never happen. The doc says the
openStream could throw only IOException. Any ideas ?

 No destination is dynamically returned by other request to the server.
Basically i am a server which returns a list of urls which i am processing
in a for loop using this code. The server is querying a search engine and
returns urls which content mach the desired search.

 The top-level function you're calling should indeed only throw those
exceptions that are specified in its signature. But if it calls other
classes / methods, there could be all kinds of exceptions, including runtime
errors (like the one you are facing). The former would be caught and
eventualy rethrown as specified by the top-level method,  the latter can
lead to crashes.

I'd recommend you track down the source for your device's version of, and take a look at the method mentioned in the
