Subject [jira] [Commented] (CAMEL-4022) Issue using errorBuilderRef with the xml dsl
Date Fri, 27 May 2011 14:18:47 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CAMEL-4022?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13040250#comment-13040250

Hadrian Zbarcea commented on CAMEL-4022:
----------------------------------------

To be more precise, I believe exceptions thrown while handling are extremely exceptional and
imho indicate a design/coding problem that needs to be resolved by the developer and should
not appear in production. I don't see any good choice a framework like camel can make for
you in such situations.

> While fixing issues around the errorHandler I noticed that <onException> definitions
defined in the camel context are ignored if a route specifies its own errorHandlerRef. The
reason is that we set the onException definition on the default error handler. I have a fix
for that, but I discovered a different issue (I think) for which I would like to discuss the
solution.
> When we have an onException definition that looks kinda like this:
> {code}
> <onException>
>   <exception> java.lang.IllegalArgumentException</exception>
>   <to uri="mock:illegalArgumentException"/>
> </onException>
> {code}
> ... something happens, the IAE exception is caught, we do something, but in that process
another exception is thrown. Currently, that would be caught by the default error handler,
which may not be what we want.
> What error handler (if any) should handle exceptions thrown while in onException?
> The onException mechanism is somewhat similar to a try/catch. I don't think the exceptions
thrown while handling onException should be handled by the same error handler configured for
the route, or even the context scoped one. The processing should be very simple, predictable
and immutable. Since the default "CamelDefaultErrorHandlerBuilder" can be replaced, it is
not imho a solution and we need one global one that does as little as possible (the problem
would be agreeing what that is: no redeliveries, logging or not, etc).
> Thoughts?
