D - Throwing exceptions in Array List ADT

Hi guys,

I've actually start taking C++ programming classes again (first time since
1995) to prepare for the inevitable! (D)

I'm trying to implement an Array List ADT from which I've got to throw
bad_alloc and logic_error exceptions.  I've pretty much completed the
implementation, however I am having a little bit of a problem understanding
this concept.  Would someone mind explaining and demonstrating how to use
throw to guard against overrunning the array in the following insert
function?

void List:: insert ( const T &item ) throw ( logic_error )
{
  if ( !Full() )
  {
    container[ ++position] = item;
    size++;
  }
  else
    return;
}

It will automatically throw an ArrayBoundsException, no extra coding
necessary.
