With the help of this book, you'll:

  • Discover best practices for Java exception handling
  • Learn failure mode analysis: how to anticipate where errors are most likely to occur
  • Understand the use of exceptions in complex APIs and frameworks including J2EE, JDBC, RMI, JMS, and more
  • Master application-wide exception handling strategies
  • Implement exceptions in complex distributed multi-tier systems
  • Learn proven design patterns for handling exceptions in code
  • Perform more effective Java testing and debugging using open source tools
