Options for displaying and logging exception information can also be specified. These tasks can be performed by modifying the web.xml file (located by default in the WEB-INFdirectory of your Web application) as follows.
Three options exist for displaying exception information to the user. Setting the crystal_exception_info parameter to one of the following values determines how exceptions are handled:
The following code shows an example of the exception display configuration:
crystal_exception_info long Options for displaying exception information. If this parameter is not set, the default value is short. It can be one of the following values: short, long, disable.
The crystal_exception_info parameter is short by default. Modifying exception.css specifies the style and formatting of short messages.
The option to turn exception logging either on or off can be set with the crystal_exception_log_file parameter. The exception information output to the log file will be in the long format regardless of the setting of the crystal_exception_info parameter. The following code shows an example of the exception logging configuration:
crystal_exception_log_file c: empwebreportingexception.log Set this parameter to log the exception in long form to the file specified. The value is the full path of the log file.
When setting the parameter to the desired path of the log file, by default, exceptions are not logged.
