Subject RE: [proxy] Commons-Lang Dependency...

How about we come up with a new interface called ExceptionHandler or
something that can be registered with the ExecutorMethodInterceptor?  We
could come up with a NullExceptionHandler which basically does nothing.  We
use a similar concept in HiveMind (ErrorHandler).  

I would like to be able to plug in error handling code for stuff like when
we find a final method in a superclass.  Right now, we merely ignore the
method and it doesn't get proxied.  But, I can see a case where you'd want
to throw an exception instead.  You'd almost have to invent an
ExceptionHandler interface which contains a method for each error scenario
or have different ExceptionHandler references for each scenario...

public class JavassistProxyFactory implements ProxyFactory
  private ExceptionHandler finalMethodInSuperclassHandler;
  // Setter/Getter

I don't know how it should look, but it would be nice to be able to
customize these scenarios on a case-by-case basis.  I would hate to have to
use a scenario id (or simply a message key) to decide which scenario we're
dealing with.

this is the typical use case for monitors (see for background). Just invent a
monitor for the proxy package, that is called for different events. Then
it's up to a user, to register a monitor that will act on such an event.
