Subject [jira] Updated: (DBCP-143) [dbcp] SQLNestedException thrown by server causes client ClassNotFoundException.
Date Sun, 15 Mar 2009 22:22:50 GMT


Mark Thomas updated DBCP-143:

    Fix Version/s:     (was: 1.4)

Removing the SQLNestedException would be an API breaking change so it would have to wait until
a DBCP 2.0 release. To be perfectly honest, I don't see a 2.0 release on the horizon right
now. However, I am not closing this as WONTFIX as it is always possible that there will be
a 2.0 release at some point but please be aware that this is some time (possibly years) away.

> This is a GUI client / application server / database server application.
> On the GUI client side, we see java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:
> org.apache.commons.dbcp.SQLNestedException.
> This happens when the database server is down, DBCP cannot connect to the
> database, and throws a org.apache.commons.dbcp.SQLNestedException.
> Our application server code sends the java.sql.SQLException it sees to the
> client via RMI.
> However, on the client, we have not provided commons-dbcp.jar.
> And I don't think we should - DBCP is server code.
> But, when the client does not have SQLNestedException's class file, the attempt
> to de-serialize it results in the ClassNotFoundException we've been seeing.
> Even old has
> the facilities that SQLNestedExcepion offers: It is able to chain another
> SQLException to itself. So while SQLNestedException clearly causes problems, I
> don't understand what DBCP gains from it.
> What would we loose if it were scratched?
