Subject InvocationResult
Date Sat, 23 Aug 2003 19:19:05 GMT
Currently an invocation results in an InvocationResult which, at it
simplest, contains the return value from a method call. Exceptions from the
method call get thrown up the interceptor stack.

I am proposing we change InvocationResult to be aware of the three possible
exit conditions from a method call:
* normal return
* declared Exception (method threw checked Exception)
* undeclared Exception (method threw RTE or Error)

This would change the return phase of the interceptor stack so that
Exceptions from the invoked object would be in the InvocationResult rather
than being thrown from getNext().invoke(). This would allow us to easily
separate exceptions raised in user-land from exceptions thrown by the system

Is this a good idea or a bad idea?
