    How to catch Entity Manager exceptions ?

    Guillaume Conte Newbie

      Hi !

      I have a few entity beans with validation annotations, and I'd like to be able to catch the exceptions thrown by the hibernate validator when something goes wrong.

      public class Country {
       @GeneratedValue( strategy=GenerationType.AUTO )
       private Integer id;
       @Length(min = 1, max = 255)
       private String name;

      public class UpdateSessionBean implements Serializable, Update {
       public CountryDataBean updateCountry( CountryDataBean bean )
       throws UpdateException {
       Country entity = this.entityManager.find( Country.class, bean.getId() );
       if ( entity == null ) {
       throw new UpdateException( "Country not found" );
       CountryMapper mapper = new CountryMapper();
       mapper.toEntity( bean, entity );
       try {
       entity = this.entityManager.merge( entity );
       catch( InvalidStateException e ) {
       ... do some stuff
       mapper.toDataBean( entity, bean );
       return bean;

      When I force an error, I get that kind of error message :

      19:49:43,158 WARN [arjLoggerI18N] [com.arjuna.ats.arjuna.coordinator.TwoPhaseCoordinator_2] TwoPhaseCoordinator.beforeCompletion - failed for com.arjuna.ats.internal.jta.resources.arjunacore.SynchronizationImple@7cd469

      Does anyone have an idea of how I could catch those damned exceptions in my session bean ? Cause it's pretty pointless for me to validate the data if I can't find a way to know that something went wrong :(

      I'm using JBoss 4.2.0 !

      Best regards,
