            Looking into the several issues we have against the exception model, it is worth
considering a re-arrangement here.


            The idea is *very* simple here.  (basic OO stuff)

1.       We have m_sMessage and m_iExceptionCode as data members in all the derived classes
– move them to base class. Move the access methods to the base class as well.

2.       Drop all processException() methods and move the logic to constructor

3.       getMessage() methods in the derived classes do not get the message rather return
the message corresponding to the exception code. Hence rename getMessage() getMessageForExceptionCode()

4.       We have “what()” in the base class to get the error message. This is a virtual
method inherited from the ‘exception’ class hence we cannot change the naming. However,
better to have a more sensible name like getMessage to wrap this

5.       There are too many constructors in the derived classes, I would like only two constructors
for each class

a.       Copy constructor

b.       Constructor with 2 parameters, exception code and message, with message defaulting
to null. ExceptionClass(int code, char* msg = null)

> Axis exceptions' method getMessage() returns a static variable. Here is an example of
the code for AxisSoapException:

>     return objExDetail;

> What is the purpose of making objExDetail static? Doing so means that it is initialized
the first time this method is called (once per instance of the class), and after that the
same value will be returned no matter what objException is. Here is a version without static:
> string AxisSoapException::getMessage (const exception& objException) const {
>     return objException.what();

> I also made the method const since we will not modify members. Also why use a pointer
when we don't have to? :)
> I also think that since this code is common between Axis exceptions, it should be move
to a common base class.
