Subject Re: Exception stack trace order
Date Wed, 16 Apr 2003 05:06:44 GMT

Still trying to put this one to bed. Lots of interesting debate on the
bugzilla report for this:

http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=14357

Steven Caswell, do you have a view on it? You're the most active name
frequently on the author javadoc for exception.* :)
Mohan has attached a set of fixes. One definite nice one is that it uses
the JDK 1.4 getCause method if available.

Anyone else with a view? Alex seems to have +1'd my suggestion below of
changing, but also been against it on the bugzilla? ;)

This is all that's really in the way of Lang 2.0 for us, so getting it
solved would be nice.
