[antlr-interest] Unexpected token; parsing java files

This question might be elementary but... I'm trying to use antlr to 
check the syntax correctness of Java files.
I have the following code:

try {       
    FileReader rdr = new FileReader(myFile);
    JavaLexer lexer = new JavaLexer(rdr);
    JavaRecognizer parser = new JavaRecognizer(lexer);
catch(Exception e) {

Works fine except when there are syntax errors like - "Unexpected 
token" or "expecting RCURLY, found '/'" in which cases no exception 
is thrown. How do I catch these? I'm looking for a very simple 
solution. I just need to know if the file has syntax errors or not. I 
don't care what the error is.
