Exception Handling - Glossary


Exception Chain

An exception chain is made up of many different exceptions or causes until the root exception is found at the bottom of the chain. When all of the causes are removed or looked at this forms the causing container. The container may be traversed either ascending (root cause first) or descending (outer most first).


Handler Bean

A CDI enabled Bean which contains handler methods. Annotated with the @HandlesExceptions annotation.

See Also Handler Method.

Handler Method

A method within a handler bean which is marked as a handler using the @Handlers on an argument, which must be an instance of CaughtException. Handler methods typically are public with a void return. Other parameters of the method will be treated as injection points and will be resolved via CDI and injected upon invocation.
