Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-1847) Path methods should throw a specific exception instead of RepositoryEx
Date Tue, 17 Feb 2009 16:30:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JCR-1847?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12674259#action_12674259

Thomas Mueller commented on JCR-1847:

I think just RepositoryException with an error codes would be better, as in JDBC (example:
http://www.h2database.com/javadoc/org/h2/constant/ErrorCode.html ). Unfortunately RepositoryException
doesn't have an error code. Specific exception just bloats everything (methods tend to end
with "throws a, b, c, d,...", and there are many catch/throw cases). The JCR 1.0 API already
has 18 exception types, which seems like far too many in my view.

Even more radical: only use unchecked exceptions (RepositoryException extends RuntimeException).
So you don't have to catch / re-throw. Most modern languages (for example Scala) don't have
checked exceptions any more.

> The o.a.j.spi.Path interface declares most methods to throw a RepositoryEx, whereas a
o.a.j.spi.commons.conversion.NameEx (or another specific exception) would make more sense,
since the RepositoryEx is too generic for what seems to be a "malformed names/path" nature
for all things that happen in a Path implementation.
