Subject RE: Add ExceptionResponse in the log?
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2012 21:58:36 GMT
Hi Frank/Alena/Sheng!

Actually I hadn't modified that part of the code when making changes earlier, but we definitely
should be seeing more than just classname@hash-of-object which is toString()'s default output
when it's passed an Object, so I'll do what Alena suggested and override toString in the ExceptionResponse
class. However, I have a question for Frank - is it necessary for us to print out the exception
stack trace, since that would surely show up in the mgmt. server log file? Also, wanting to
print the stack trace would mean having to change quite a few parts of the code to pass the
exception object to the calls that build the responses to the exception. Any specific reason
why this wasn't the approach to begin with, other than that the exception stack trace would
show up in the mgmt. server log file?

Finally, the function CompleteAsyncJob() which prints out the message Sheng referred to:

s_logger.debug("Complete async job-" + jobId + ", jobStatus: " + jobStatus +
                    ", resultCode: " + resultCode + ", result: " + resultObject);

is invoked at different parts of the code that builds resultObject differently - in extractVolume()
in and updateDatabase() in, it's of type ExtractResponse
instead of ExceptionResponse. So I think I'll have to override toString() in both ExceptionResponse
and ExtractResponse classes - Alena, does that sound right?

Vijay, please make sure stack trace is logged as well.  Text of Exception.getMessage() is
definitely not enough
