Well, this was long overdue. I had promised to upload my article that won a contest by osnews.com. I finally found a little time to upload it here, though the formatting is still a bit screwed especially on the code snippets. You can read the article. If you would like a pdf version of the same let me know and I can either put it up here or email it to you. Here is my blurb from the article:
Exceptions are a very powerful concept when used correctly. An important cornerstone in the design of a good application is the strategy you adopt for Exception Management. You must ensure that your design is extensible to be able to handle unforeseen exceptions gracefully, log them appropriately and generate metrics to allow the applications to be monitored externally.
