    Manager Exception with page.xml

    daniele campanini Newbie
      In my application I managed some exeception with page.xml. When I got some exception i redirect to a error page and i'd like do send a email or write a log. So i added an action to the error page; it's work but how can i get the exception stack trace to write it on the email body?

      this is the code

      <exception class="javax.ejb.NoSuchEJBException">
        <redirect view-id="/error.xhtml">
           <message severity="warn">"My message"</message>

      <page view-id="/error.xhtml" login-required="true" action="#{email.send()}" >

          The correct way is to extends Seam's ExceptionHandler.

          From this class you can get the stacktrace, and call an event that will either log or send the stacktrace as email.


          Pseudo code:

          public class MyExceptionHandler extends ExceptionHandler {
              public void handle(Exception e) {
                 StringWriter writer = new StringWriter();
                 Events.instance().raiseEvent("ExceptionOccurred", writer.toString());
                 //This event will trigger an email to be sendt with the stacktrace

          The above code wont work as is, you will need to rewrite it slightly

            Ok so this is how we do it, you can basically copy/paste this

            import java.io.PrintWriter;
            import java.io.StringWriter;
            import org.jboss.seam.Component;
            import org.jboss.seam.ScopeType;
            import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Install;
            import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Name;
            import org.jboss.seam.annotations.Scope;
            import org.jboss.seam.annotations.intercept.BypassInterceptors;
            import org.jboss.seam.core.Events;
            import org.jboss.seam.exception.Exceptions;
            @Install(precedence = Install.APPLICATION)
            public class ExceptionHandler extends Exceptions {
                 public void handle(Exception ex) throws Exception {
                      StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();
                      PrintWriter pw = new PrintWriter(sw);
                      ex.printStackTrace(pw); //Put the stracktrace in StringWriter
                      Events.instance().raiseAsynchronousEvent(SystemlogListener.EVENT_ADD_DETAILED_SYSTEMLOG, ex.getMessage()),sw.toString());
