NAME ^

perfSONAR_PS::Error - A module that provides the exceptions framework for perfSONAR PS

DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides the base object for all exception types that will be presented.

SYNOPSIS ^

  # first define the errors somewhere
  package Some::Error;
  use base "Error::Simple";
  1;
  

  use Some::Error;

  # you MUST import this, otherwise the try/catch blocks will fail
  use Error qw(:try);  

  # if an error occurs, perfSONAR_PS objects should throw an error eg
  sub openDB {
    my $handle = undef;
    $handle = DBI->connect( ... )
          or throw Some::Error( "Could not connect to database: " . $DBI::errstr . "\n" );
        return $handle;
  }


  ### script.pl ###
  
  # in the calling code
  my $dbh = undef;
  try {
  
    $dbh = &openDB();
  
  }
  catch Some::Error with {
  
    # print the contents of the error object (the string)
    print "An error occurred $@\n";
  
  }
  otherwise {
  
    # some other error occured!
    print "Some unknown error occurred! $@\n";
  
  }
  finally {
  
    print "Done!\n"'
  
  }; 
  
  # don't forget the trailing ';'

toEventType

returns the perfsonar event type for this exception as a string, ensure that you throw the appropriate inheritied exception object for automatic eventType creation.

errorMessage

returns the error message itself (also the same as casting the object as a string)
