Public Constructors

public TransformerException (String message)

Added in API level 8

Create a new TransformerException.

Parameters
message String: The error or warning message.

public TransformerException (Throwable e)

Added in API level 8

Create a new TransformerException wrapping an existing exception.

Parameters
e Throwable: The exception to be wrapped.

public TransformerException (String message, Throwable e)

Added in API level 8

Wrap an existing exception in a TransformerException.

This is used for throwing processor exceptions before the processing has started.

Parameters
message String: The error or warning message, or null to use the message from the embedded exception.
e Throwable: Any exception

public TransformerException (String message, SourceLocator locator)

Added in API level 8

Create a new TransformerException from a message and a Locator.

This constructor is especially useful when an application is creating its own exception from within a DocumentHandler callback.

Parameters
message String: The error or warning message.
locator SourceLocator: The locator object for the error or warning.

public TransformerException (String message, SourceLocator locator, Throwable e)

Added in API level 8

Wrap an existing exception in a TransformerException.

Parameters
message String: The error or warning message, or null to use the message from the embedded exception.
locator SourceLocator: The locator object for the error or warning.
e Throwable: Any exception

Public Methods

public Throwable getCause ()

Added in API level 8

Returns the cause of this throwable or null if the cause is nonexistent or unknown. (The cause is the throwable that caused this throwable to get thrown.)

Returns
Throwable

public Throwable getException ()

Added in API level 8

This method retrieves an exception that this exception wraps.

Returns
Throwable An Throwable object, or null.

See also:

public String getLocationAsString ()

Added in API level 8

Get the location information as a string.

Returns
String A string with location info, or null if there is no location information.

public SourceLocator getLocator ()

Added in API level 8

Method getLocator retrieves an instance of a SourceLocator object that specifies where an error occurred.

Returns
SourceLocator A SourceLocator object, or null if none was specified.

public String getMessageAndLocation ()

Added in API level 8

Get the error message with location information appended.

Returns
String A String representing the error message with location information appended.

public Throwable initCause (Throwable cause)

Added in API level 8

Initializes the cause of this throwable to the specified value. (The cause is the throwable that caused this throwable to get thrown.)

This method can be called at most once. It is generally called from within the constructor, or immediately after creating the throwable. If this throwable was created with TransformerException(Throwable) or TransformerException(String, Throwable), this method cannot be called even once.

Parameters
cause Throwable: the cause (which is saved for later retrieval by the getCause() method). (A null value is permitted, and indicates that the cause is nonexistent or unknown.)
Returns
Throwable a reference to this Throwable instance.
Throws
IllegalArgumentException if cause is this throwable. (A throwable cannot be its own cause.)
IllegalStateException if this throwable was created with TransformerException(Throwable) or TransformerException(String, Throwable), or this method has already been called on this throwable.

public void printStackTrace (PrintWriter s)

Added in API level 8

Print the the trace of methods from where the error originated. This will trace all nested exception objects, as well as this object.

Parameters
s PrintWriter: The writer where the dump will be sent to.

public void printStackTrace (PrintStream s)

Added in API level 8

Print the the trace of methods from where the error originated. This will trace all nested exception objects, as well as this object.

Parameters
s PrintStream: The stream where the dump will be sent to.

public void printStackTrace ()

Added in API level 8

Print the the trace of methods from where the error originated. This will trace all nested exception objects, as well as this object.

public void setLocator (SourceLocator location)

Added in API level 8

Method setLocator sets an instance of a SourceLocator object that specifies where an error occurred.

Parameters
location SourceLocator: A SourceLocator object, or null to clear the location.
