Dear all,
Following lines will depict my situation.
try {
invokes...the m1 method in the EJB Bean.
} catch(ABCException ae) {
System.out.println("in abc catch");
} catch(RemoteException re) {
System.out.println("in remote catch");
EJB Bean
m1() throws ABCException, RemoteException {
dao invoking code
m1() throws ABCException {
try {
db access code here....
} catch(Exception e) {
throw new ABCException("relevant msg");
If there is an error in DAOImpl...it throws the ABCException to Bean and inturn the same is thrown to Servlet.
But the problem is, In Servlet...i am getting the output....
"in remote catch"
Can anybody say why it is so ?
Note : My ABCException extends EJBException.

This is the expected behavior.
The problem is, EJBException is a subclass of RuntimeException and hence NOT considered an application exception by the container.
If you want the exception to be propagated to (Servlet)client in its original shape and form, it has to be an application exception. EJB spec requires all application exceptions to be direct subclass of java.lang.Exception.

Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
