I found a little design flaw in the Poco::Util::Application class.
Code: Select all
int rc = EXIT_SOFTWARE;
rc = main(_args);
catch (Poco::Exception& exc)
catch (std::exception& exc)
Although exceptions thrown in main() are logged, those in initialize() are not. This is important to me since i need to verify some configuration values which are required for the initialization.
Throwing a exception, if values are not correct, will cause termination of the programm but no logging.
Its easy to change that in the next version by putting initialize() in the try block.
