Constructor:
 public IllegalArgumentException() 
 public IllegalArgumentException(String s) 
    Constructs an IllegalArgumentException with the specified detail message.
    Parameters:
    s - the detail message.
 public IllegalArgumentException(Throwable cause) 
    Constructs a new exception with the specified cause and a detail message of (cause==null ? null : cause.toString()) (which typically contains the class and detail message of cause). This constructor is useful for exceptions that are little more than wrappers for other throwables (for example, java.security.PrivilegedActionException ).
    Parameters:
    cause - the cause (which is saved for later retrieval by the Throwable#getCause() method). (A null value is permitted, and indicates that the cause is nonexistent or unknown.)

 public IllegalArgumentException(String message,
    Throwable cause) 
    Constructs a new exception with the specified detail message and cause.

    Note that the detail message associated with cause is not automatically incorporated in this exception's detail message.

    Parameters:
    message - the detail message (which is saved for later retrieval by the Throwable#getMessage() method).
    cause - the cause (which is saved for later retrieval by the Throwable#getCause() method). (A null value is permitted, and indicates that the cause is nonexistent or unknown.)
    since: 1.5 -
