So do you mean that I should just catch the exceptions in my java classes as I would have
done normally. 

Please find the task snippet i am trying to run below. How do I catch an exception here?

<target name="test">
     <junit printsummary="yes" haltonfailure="no" haltonerror="no"

       <!-- Including the testing classes and the .properties files --> 
          <pathelement location="${my.classes}"/>
         <!-- Including all the .jar files -->
            <path refid="my.classpath"/>

        <formatter type="plain" usefile="false"/>
  <test name=TestLinks'/>

Not having that, and not know what task you're using, I will offer this:

UrlConnection/HttpConnection from the stock Java JDK will, depending on 
what version you have, throw a FileNotFound exception for the 404 code, and 
a different exception on other error HTTP status codes. If the task you're 
using isn't catching the exceptions, it will most likely "fail".

J2SE 1.4.1 is supposed to rationalize this behavior, but I've not had a 
chance to verify it.
