Subject Raising of raw Exceptions (HP Fortify SCA issues)
Date Mon, 10 Mar 2014 21:15:45 GMT
We have recently started including references to Curator in our code.  We run all of our own
code through Fortify SCA for static analysis.  Fortify is not happy that our calls to Curator
raise exceptions of the type Exception and is complaining about "Overly broad Catch".   Is
there a reason Curator needs to throw such broad exceptions as opposed to the underlying exception
that was really raised?

As an example, here is a utility method I've created, which Fortify doesn't like.
    public PathChildrenCache getCacheForPath(String requestedPath) {
        PathChildrenCache cache = new PathChildrenCache(client, requestedPath, true);
        try {
        } catch (Exception e) {
              // reraise goes here
        return cache;
