> In this project, the cause of the exception is often ignored, and only the message of
the cause is used, as in:
> } catch (Exception e) {
>     log.error("Error in configuration: {}", e.toString());
>     throw new ServletException("Error in configuration: " + e.toString());
> }
> An additional problem is that when using ServletException(String message, Throwable rootCause),
the rootCause is not used in printStackTrace(), that means the cause is not logged. See also:
http://closingbraces.net/2007/11/27/servletexceptionrootcause/
> It is therefore better to convert 
>   throw new ServletException("Unable to create RMI repository. jcr-rmi.jar might be missing.",
e);
> to
>   ServletException s = new ServletException("Unable to create RMI repository. jcr-rmi.jar
might be missing.");
>   s.initCause(e);
>   throw s;
