Hi folks
I've thought how to show a friendly message error to user when application server is out for some reason.
What I've done is:

that way, the message is not friendly...look here:
Connection refused to host:; nested exception is:
java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused: connect

What do you think guys ? Any sugestion ?

E ai Fernando!

Champion... how about this:

You may also want to add to the message e.getMessage() or e.getLocalizedMessage().

Hi Fernando,

I caught the RemoteException and showed a user-friendly message like Roberto is showing in his post. The detailed exception message could be shown too, or you can decide to write that one to log file.

I just showed my user-friendly message and that's it (because there is no logging requirement I turned logging completely off, so no sense to log the exception).

Kind regards,
