Interface SQLExceptionTranslator

All Known Implementing Classes:
AbstractFallbackSQLExceptionTranslator, SQLErrorCodeSQLExceptionTranslator, SQLExceptionSubclassTranslator, SQLStateSQLExceptionTranslator
Functional Interface:
This is a functional interface and can therefore be used as the assignment target for a lambda expression or method reference.

@FunctionalInterface public interface SQLExceptionTranslator
Strategy interface for translating between SQLExceptions and Spring's data access strategy-agnostic DataAccessException hierarchy.

Implementations can be generic (for example, using SQLState codes for JDBC) or wholly proprietary (for example, using Oracle error codes) for greater precision.

    • translate

      Translate the given SQLException into a generic DataAccessException.

      The returned DataAccessException is supposed to contain the original SQLException as root cause. However, client code may not generally rely on this due to DataAccessExceptions possibly being caused by other resource APIs as well. That said, a getRootCause() instanceof SQLException check (and subsequent cast) is considered reliable when expecting JDBC-based access to have happened.

      task - readable text describing the task being attempted
      sql - the SQL query or update that caused the problem (if known)
      ex - the offending SQLException
      the DataAccessException wrapping the SQLException, or null if no specific translation could be applied
