Class NestedCheckedException

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable

    public abstract class NestedCheckedException
    extends Exception
    Handy class for wrapping checked Exceptions with a root cause.

    This class is abstract to force the programmer to extend the class. getMessage will include nested exception information; printStackTrace and other like methods will delegate to the wrapped exception, if any.

    The similarity between this class and the NestedRuntimeException class is unavoidable, as Java forces these two classes to have different superclasses (ah, the inflexibility of concrete inheritance!).

      • getMostSpecificCause

        public Throwable getMostSpecificCause()
        Retrieve the most specific cause of this exception, that is, either the innermost cause (root cause) or this exception itself.

        Returns:
        the most specific cause (never null)

      • contains

        public boolean contains(Class exType)

        Parameters:
        exType - the exception type to look for
        Returns:
        whether there is a nested exception of the specified type
