Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-691) Let NameException extend RepositoryException
Date Thu, 28 Dec 2006 10:25:21 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-691?page=comments#action_12461170 ] 
Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-691:

> But this change may break some code, no?

Yes, it's a change to the public API of jackrabbit-jcr-commons, and thus can lead to some
things breaking. This is the reason why I didn't just commit the change.

I don't think there are many (any?) cases where BaseException is caught instead of NameException
or one of the more specific subclasses, thus this change shouldn't affect too many things.
But please comment if there are cases where this would be troublesome.

> Since the NameExceptions (IllegalNameException, UnknownPrefixException, etc.) are typically
thrown when parsing or formatting JCR names at the JCR API level, it would make sense for
the NameException class to extend RepositoryException instead of the internal BaseException.
This idea is supported by the fact that the majority of cases where NameExceptions are encountered
simply rethrow the exceptions wrapped inside RepositoryException instances. Making NameException
extend RepositoryException would reduce the amount of try-catch blocks and wrapped exceptions.
