Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
A generic javax.naming.NamingException was being thrown when a occurred instead of the more specific javax.naming.CommunicationException. This change makes it throw a javax.naming.CommunicationException when a connection exception occurs. CommunicationException is a subclass of NamingException, so any code that previously caught a NamingException will still work as expected.

Done through upgrade to jboss-remote-naming 1.0.8.Final, which is used in EAP 6.2.2.CR2.

Comment 3 Scott Mumford 2014-03-12 22:38:19 UTC
Does this issue require an entry in the EAP 6.2.2 Release Notes?

If so, please populate the details in the Doc Text field to allow ECS to begin drafting a note for it.

Note: "$THING was broken and now $THING is fixed" is not a suitable release note draft.

Comment 4 Jan Martiska 2014-03-24 14:12:21 UTC
Huh, I see that the release note for this was incorporated in the note for #1053426. Therefore this doesn't require any more work.

Comment 5 Scott Mumford 2014-03-24 20:57:23 UTC
Nice catch Jan! I hadn't even realised these were the same thing.
