Field Detail

ROLLBACK_ON_RUNTIME_EXCEPTIONS

public static final RollbackRuleAttribute ROLLBACK_ON_RUNTIME_EXCEPTIONS
The rollback rule for RuntimeExceptions.

Constructor Detail

RollbackRuleAttribute

public RollbackRuleAttribute(java.lang.Class clazz)
Create a new instance of the RollbackRuleAttribute class.

This is the preferred way to construct a rollback rule that matches the supplied Exception class (and subclasses).

Parameters:
clazz - throwable class; must be Throwable or a subclass of Throwable
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if the supplied clazz is not a Throwable type or is null

RollbackRuleAttribute

public RollbackRuleAttribute(java.lang.String exceptionName)
Create a new instance of the RollbackRuleAttribute class for the given exceptionName.

This can be a substring, with no wildcard support at present. A value of "ServletException" would match javax.servlet.ServletException and subclasses, for example.

NB: Consider carefully how specific the pattern is, and whether to include package information (which is not mandatory). For example, "Exception" will match nearly anything, and will probably hide other rules. "java.lang.Exception" would be correct if "Exception" was meant to define a rule for all checked exceptions. With more unusual exception names such as "BaseBusinessException" there's no need to use a fully package-qualified name.

Parameters:
exceptionName - the exception name pattern; can also be a fully package-qualified class name
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException - if the supplied exceptionName is null or empty
Method Detail

getExceptionName

public java.lang.String getExceptionName()
Return the pattern for the exception name.


getDepth

public int getDepth(java.lang.Throwable ex)
Return the depth of the superclass matching.

0 means ex matches exactly. Returns -1 if there is no match. Otherwise, returns depth with the lowest depth winning.


equals

public boolean equals(java.lang.Object other)
Overrides:
equals in class java.lang.Object

hashCode

public int hashCode()
Overrides:
hashCode in class java.lang.Object

toString

public java.lang.String toString()
Overrides:
toString in class java.lang.Object
