public class: PrivilegedActionException [javadoc | source]
java.lang.Object
   java.lang.Throwable
      java.lang.Exception
         java.security.PrivilegedActionException

All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable

This exception is thrown by doPrivileged(PrivilegedExceptionAction) and doPrivileged(PrivilegedExceptionAction, AccessControlContext context) to indicate that the action being performed threw a checked exception. The exception thrown by the action can be obtained by calling the getException method. In effect, an PrivilegedActionException is a "wrapper" for an exception thrown by a privileged action.

As of release 1.4, this exception has been retrofitted to conform to the general purpose exception-chaining mechanism. The "exception thrown by the privileged computation" that is provided at construction time and accessed via the #getException() method is now known as the cause, and may be accessed via the Throwable#getCause() method, as well as the aforementioned "legacy method."

Method from java.security.PrivilegedActionException Detail:
 public Throwable getCause() 
    Returns the cause of this exception (the exception thrown by the privileged computation that resulted in this PrivilegedActionException).
 public Exception getException() 
    Returns the exception thrown by the privileged computation that resulted in this PrivilegedActionException.

    This method predates the general-purpose exception chaining facility. The Throwable#getCause() method is now the preferred means of obtaining this information.
