Bad Exception

2003-10-30 15:21:16,347 WARN [root] There was an error loading Tyrex, this may not be a serious problem, but you probably want to know anyway. Will continue with probably very slow manual JDBC load.

Well…. eventually I worked out that yes I did want to know, and that the swallowed exception actually was a pain, and that including ots-jts_1.0.jar removes the warning, and making the application work….

:(

As bad as stack traces can be, the above behaviour is worse, and much much harder to trace. Some developers deserve to be shot…. or at least taken to a room and shaken around.
