      The following code within the first try{} generates OutOfMemory error.
      When trying to print its stacktrace NPE is thrown from method of class Throwable

      public class OME {
          public static void main(String[] args) {
              try {
                  char[] chars = new char[Integer.MAX_VALUE];
              } catch (Throwable e) {
                  try {
                      e.printStackTrace();
                  } catch (NullPointerException npe) {
                      System.err.println("NPE thrown:");
                      npe.printStackTrace();
                  }
