Description Jesse Glick 2009-03-13 16:17:07 UTC
See issue #160262 for full stack trace. AntBasedGenericType is catching an IOException properly thrown from
NbModuleProject.<init>, yet rethrowing as an IAE, which is not permitted. An IOException would have been caught and
logged at FINE by SFOQI, but an IAE is reported as an error.
Comment 1 Jaroslav Tulach 2009-03-13 17:01:20 UTC
Ok. I see.
Comment 2 Jesse Glick 2009-03-13 17:06:25 UTC
Probably should deconstruct any InvocationTargetException, which produces three cases:

1. IOException -> rethrow

2. RuntimeException -> rethrow (was already illegal, can't make it worse)

3. other -> raise as assertion error; should not happen assuming that ann proc preverifies that constructor or factory
method lists at most IOException in throws clause

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200903170201* on (upload may still be in progress)
