Constructor Detail

JAXBException

public JAXBException(String message)
Construct a JAXBException with the specified detail message. The errorCode and linkedException will default to null.

Parameters:
message - a description of the exception

JAXBException

public JAXBException(String message,
                     String errorCode)
Construct a JAXBException with the specified detail message and vendor specific errorCode. The linkedException will default to null.

Parameters:
message - a description of the exception
errorCode - a string specifying the vendor specific error code

JAXBException

public JAXBException(Throwable exception)
Construct a JAXBException with a linkedException. The detail message and vendor specific errorCode will default to null.

Parameters:
exception - the linked exception

JAXBException

public JAXBException(String message,
                     Throwable exception)
Construct a JAXBException with the specified detail message and linkedException. The errorCode will default to null.

Parameters:
message - a description of the exception
exception - the linked exception

JAXBException

public JAXBException(String message,
                     String errorCode,
                     Throwable exception)
Construct a JAXBException with the specified detail message, vendor specific errorCode, and linkedException.

Parameters:
message - a description of the exception
errorCode - a string specifying the vendor specific error code
exception - the linked exception
Method Detail

getErrorCode

public String getErrorCode()
Get the vendor specific error code

Returns:
a string specifying the vendor specific error code

getLinkedException

public Throwable getLinkedException()
Get the linked exception

Returns:
the linked Exception, null if none exists

setLinkedException

public void setLinkedException(Throwable exception)
Add a linked Exception.

Parameters:
exception - the linked Exception (A null value is permitted and indicates that the linked exception does not exist or is unknown).

toString

public String toString()
Returns a short description of this JAXBException.

Overrides:
toString in class Throwable
Returns:
a string representation of this throwable.

printStackTrace

public void printStackTrace(PrintStream s)
Prints this JAXBException and its stack trace (including the stack trace of the linkedException if it is non-null) to the PrintStream.

Overrides:
printStackTrace in class Throwable
Parameters:
s - PrintStream to use for output

printStackTrace

public void printStackTrace()
Prints this JAXBException and its stack trace (including the stack trace of the linkedException if it is non-null) to System.err.

Overrides:
printStackTrace in class Throwable

printStackTrace

public void printStackTrace(PrintWriter s)
Prints this JAXBException and its stack trace (including the stack trace of the linkedException if it is non-null) to the PrintWriter.

Overrides:
printStackTrace in class Throwable
Parameters:
s - PrintWriter to use for output

getCause

public Throwable getCause()
Description copied from class: Throwable
Returns the cause of this throwable or null if the cause is nonexistent or unknown. (The cause is the throwable that caused this throwable to get thrown.)

This implementation returns the cause that was supplied via one of the constructors requiring a Throwable, or that was set after creation with the Throwable.initCause(Throwable) method. While it is typically unnecessary to override this method, a subclass can override it to return a cause set by some other means. This is appropriate for a "legacy chained throwable" that predates the addition of chained exceptions to Throwable. Note that it is not necessary to override any of the PrintStackTrace methods, all of which invoke the getCause method to determine the cause of a throwable.

Overrides:
getCause in class Throwable
Returns:
the cause of this throwable or null if the cause is nonexistent or unknown.
