Subject Patches to improve exception messages
Author Todd Jonker
Hi everyone,

I'd like to offer two small patches.

The first is a rewrite of GDSException.getMessage() that includes the
messages of any chained exceptions. This helps alleviate a problem I saw
frequently, where the error message had no useful diagnostic information
because it was buried down the chain.

The second is a small addition to FBWrappingDataSource.checkStarted() that
ensures that the FBManagedConnectionFactory has a non-null database name.
This prevents a NullPointerException in one misconfiguration scenario.

I've attached a patch file (via cvs diff -c) that I hope will be usable.

Thanks for offering such a great project to the community.
