Using map:parameter you can only supply string values, so that wouldn't

The exception (throwable) object is available in the objectModel, and
can be retrieved from it using ObjectModelHelper.getThrowable(). I don't
think there's a proper way to access this from flowscript, though there
are a variety of workarounds.
