public class PrivilegedActionException extends Exception
doPrivileged(PrivilegedExceptionAction, AccessControlContext context)to indicate that the action being performed threw a checked exception. The exception thrown by the action can be obtained by calling the
getExceptionmethod. In effect, an
PrivilegedActionExceptionis a "wrapper" for an exception thrown by a privileged action.
As of release 1.4, this exception has been retrofitted to conform to
the general purpose exception-chaining mechanism. The "exception thrown
by the privileged computation" that is provided at construction time and
accessed via the
getException() method is now known as the
cause, and may be accessed via the
method, as well as the aforementioned "legacy method."
