Subject [jira] Updated: (DERBY-2472) Use Throwable.initCause() to improve error reporting
Date Sun, 27 May 2007 14:20:16 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2472?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel

Knut Anders Hatlen updated DERBY-2472:

    Attachment: initCause2.stat

I have changed my mind again about how to handle the unsafe calls to initCause(). The comments
in the code indicate that the complexity was added deliberately and I do see the value of
getting all the errors for instance if you try to drop a table and there are many dependent
objects. Therefore, I suggest that we keep the current behaviour when we can, and if initCause()
throws IllegalStateException, we skip the exception we could not put into the chain. This
is a very simple change, it doesn't require any test changes like the previous suggestion
did, and it guarantees that the first exception caught is always part of the exception chain.
initCause2.diff implements the suggested solution. All tests passed.

> As Derby has moved to J2SE 1.4, Throwable.initCause() can now be used to improve error
> As stated in the initial commit (that was backed out, see below):
> 'Set Throwable.initCause() in a couple of locations at the JDBC level where we setup
nested SQLExceptions.
> This means that automatically the stack trace for a database failed to start includes
the reason
> for the failure, rather than just "see next exception". This is a great help when running
> JUnit tests and getting failures to start a database.'
> The initial commit was backed out because it broke numerous tests under JDK 1.6, and
the author indicated he had no time to investigate.
> The patch caused no failures when running the tests with Java SE 5.0.
