Error handling in adf

To override the default error handler one can extend the DCErrorHandlerImpl. In this you can process the exceptions or can choose to suppress them. In this post i will explain a way to suppress the RowValException message and display only the detail entity attribute level exception ie AttrValException. In ADF the exceptions are grouped and raised together as a single object. For example let's say that 2 of the attributes fail the mandatory validation then the exceptions raised for them will be 2 individual AttrValException these are then attached as detail objects into a RowValException and if there are many such RowValException they will be attached and raised together as a TxnValException. So now to handle the aforementioned task we need to recursively  process the exceptions and suppress the RowValException message. The snippet below shows that :-

            disableAppendCodes((Exception) detailExceptions[z]);
          }
        }
      }
  }
  @Override
    protected boolean skipException(Exception ex) {
      if (ex instanceof JboException) {
        return false;
      } else if (ex instanceof SQLIntegrityConstraintViolationException) {
        return true;
      }
      return super.skipException(ex);
    }

    @Override
    public String getDisplayMessage(BindingContext bindingContext,
                                    Exception exception) {
        return super.getDisplayMessage(bindingContext, exception);
    }

    @Override
    public DCErrorMessage getDetailedDisplayMessage(BindingContext bindingContext,
                                                    RegionBinding regionBinding,
                                                    Exception exception) {


    return super.getDetailedDisplayMessage(bindingContext, regionBinding, exception);
    }
}

In this snippet i am recursively processing TxnValException->RowValException -> AttrValException. The AttrValException is being passed in the super call to the DCErrorHandlerImpl to process and display the message.
