Subject [jira] Updated: (CLI-93) [cli] Better exception messages when validating required fields
Date Wed, 12 Jul 2006 05:47:30 GMT
     [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/CLI-93?page=all ]

Henri Yandell updated CLI-93:
-----------------------------

    Bugzilla Id:   (was: 26930)
    Fix Version: 2.0

Seems easy enough to look into for 2.0. Seem to recall there's another one asking that the
exception's thrown contain the Option objects etc.

> some phrase stating something like: "The following required fields were not 
> found: -r, -g.", then we could just pass the exception message on to the user.
