Subject [jira] [Created] (DIRSERVER-1855) java.lang.IllegalStateException: Can't overwrite cause at org.apache.directory.server.core.authz.GroupCache.initialize(GroupCache.java:190)

Konrad Windszus created DIRSERVER-1855:
------------------------------------------

             Summary: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Can't overwrite cause at org.apache.directory.server.core.authz.GroupCache.initialize(GroupCache.java:190)
                 Key: DIRSERVER-1855
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DIRSERVER-1855
             Project: Directory ApacheDS
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: core
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-M12
            Reporter: Konrad Windszus
            Priority: Critical


We got the following exception stack trace after trying to start ApacheDS from a backup:
{code}
14:37:15] ERROR [org.apache.directory.server.wrapper.ApacheDsTanukiWrapper] - Failed to start
the service.

The problem here really is, that this exception hides the real problem here. I see that even
in the trunk you try to set the cause in http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/directory/apacheds/trunk/interceptors/authz/src/main/java/org/apache/directory/server/core/authz/GroupCache.java
in the initializeMethod. That is not allowed and leads to that exception if the original exception
already has a cause set (http://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/api/java/lang/Throwable.html#initCause%28java.lang.Throwable%29).
Rather just wrap the original exception and leave out the initCause or at least check first,
if the initCause is allowed at that point. Also please remove the e.printStackTrace as it
will land in the standard error stream rather than in the log.
