Subject Re: Overloaded processException in AxisEngineException class
Date Thu, 30 Jun 2005 10:16:14 GMT
I've always questioned why we have processException in the first place ! 
I've never understood why you would want it. If the same fault is thrown 
by different processes then you would have to know which process call you 
were in to do anything useful. I have no idea why we don't just remove it. 
I think you should always handle exceptions in the calling program using 
try catch as usual.
