I need better error handling
Just been working for a couple of hours now, but I found error handling to be poor. Exceptions are thrown with no clear error messages. Documentation is missing (TagException seems bo no exist according to the knowledge base).
I am happy to report that this idea was reviewed and accepted for development. I will update this ticket again when this functionality has development started and a release date is clear.
Thank you for your idea.

Thank you for your suggestion. First off, TagException is documented in the wiki, If you go to http://wiki.windward.net/Java_Engine/Java_Engine_API then on the left it lists TagException which takes you to http://www.windward.net/javadoc/net/windward/tags/TagException.html (there's no way in JavaDocs to provide a url that has you on a page using the frames).
Second, can you please provide specific examples of unclear error messages and missing documentation?
Third, we are looking at improving how we present our documentation. So any suggestions as to how it should all be organized are very appreciated.
thanks - dave
