    exception handling in flex

      hi all,

      i am using httpservice to request a method call in the servlet.
      the method in servlet throws exception with some message
      say throws new IncorrectParameterException("incorrect parameters passed"); in my servlet.

      how do i get this message in flex.

      I tried using asynctoken = httpservice.send();

      and added a responder with fault event and i get the alert message with the properties of error message..but not the actual message..and not even the exception class type.

      i just get the bubble,cancellable and the url of my servlet in the alert with alert.show(event.rootcause)

      so,how do i get the message "incorrect parameter passed" in the flex so as to give an appropriate error message to the end user..

      thanks in advace

          htpService communications are exclusively via xml,
          if you had used RemoteObject (blazeDS) it handles throwable objects very nicely, but with httpService you have to return a error xml, you xan to something lik ethis in servlet

          try {
          code that throws eception etc ... lalala
          } catch (Exception e) {

          //generate error xml, and flush it back via response,

          out.println("<response>"+e.getMessage() +"</response>");
          etc ...

          than you can read that error in httpService, as regular response,
          I am not sure if you can force this message to go throuhg faultREsult though,
