I am trying to use a custom exception mapper

I am handling my own exceptions happily
and returning the http status code I want, and the right xml/json response
with the right helper messages, but when it comes trying to catch wink
errors such as a url/method/body being wrong and not matching a handler
I am struggling. I want to handle these myself because wink does not format
them into xml/json, and if it did, would still be choosing its own format
rather than mine.
I have an exceptionMapper which handles
WebApplicationException but from the exception I get there, I cannot figure
out how to get a description of the cause. I can get the stack, which normally
isn't helpful, and I can get the http status code from the response, but
trying to get a string saying "there is no handler for method PUT
on resource /wibble/" seems to be impossible.
Has anyone attempted this? Did you find
The closest I can get is parsing the
http status code and writing a description stream for each, but then I
have to parse the Request object to work out what the user called. I would
have thought wink has already done some of this for me.
