Subject [jira] [Commented] (KARAF-1748) Karaf startup fails with NullPointerException when logfile can't be written
Date Wed, 05 Sep 2012 03:34:07 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/KARAF-1748?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13448430#comment-13448430

Heath Kesler commented on KARAF-1748:

Should this avoid all stack traces and only print the message or are we just looking to add
a more meaningful message to the exceptions?  It seems to me that just printing the message
would be the more complete solution since the stack trace is no longer needed in that instance,
but was looking for some feedback.

This is still the exception in 3.0 also.
