Subject [jira] Commented: (IO-148) IOException with constructors which take a cause
Date Fri, 21 Dec 2007 19:32:43 GMT


Gary Gregory commented on IO-148:

This is a good idea. We use such a class in our product as we are not on Java 6 yet. I would
migrate to use this class and dump ours when released. The only issue I see is agreeing on
a name. 'CauseIOException' is a bit odd to me. IMO, it is not crystal clear what the class
does. Alternatives could be:
- IOExceptionWithCause
- IOExceptionExtended
- ExtendedIOException

Constructors which take a cause (Throwable) were not added to IOException until JDK 1.6 but
the initCause() method  was added to Throwable in JDK 1.4.
> We should copy the Tika implementation and test case here:
