View Full Version : Java + Struts 2 + Ext - How to use failure method?

17 Oct 2011, 10:20 AM
How can I handle and error on Struts 2 and send it to Ext in a way I can get it on failure?
I tried using a specific jsp with exception-mapping but I was going to success.
If I let the error come, the response text is and page from tomcat.
I would like to receive in the same way but if the message was my error message.
What I'm doing know is setting success false but I'm not confortable with that.

Does anyone is using the failure method for the requests and can get the error message?

Have you tried setting the status code for the response? If you return as 4xx or 5xx error it should go to the failure handler.

That worked. Thanks!

What I did on struts.xml

<result name="errorExt">/errorPages/errorExt.jsp</result>

<exception-mapping exception="br.com.g3.exception.G3Exception" result="errorExt" />



Sending the error:

G3Error g3error = new G3Error(errorCode, erroMsg);
String errorString = this.getJSONSerializer().serialize(g3error);
request.setAttribute("errorExt", errorString);
