Subject WriterAppender.createWriter - opinion of exception catching
Date Mon, 11 Feb 2002 20:09:27 GMT

Upon catching the IOException, a warning msg is output:
    LogLog.warn("Unsupported encoding?");

Would it not be better to explicitly catch the UnsupportedEncodingException and
log the appropriate msg then?
For example:

  OutputStreamWriter createWriter(OutputStream os) {
    OutputStreamWriter retval = null;

    String enc = getEncoding();
    if(enc != null) {
      try {
 retval = new OutputStreamWriter(os, enc);
      }catch (UnsupportEncodingException uee) {
 LogLog.warn("Error initializing output writer.");
 LogLog.warn("Unsupported encoding.");

  } catch(IOException e) {
 LogLog.warn("Error initializing output writer.");
    if(retval == null) {
      retval = new OutputStreamWriter(os);
    return retval;

I am not in fact a subscriber to the dev mailing list, only the user mailing
Thought I would share my thoughts though.
