IllegalStateException close browser

Is there a way for me to know that the cause of throwing this exception is ONLY when the browser is closed? i work on an application that sends email error notifications if it throws an exception. But if it is IllegalStateException and the cause is when the browser is closed, i don't want the app to send the email notification.

This FAQ entry covers the most common causes of IllegalStateExceptions in Java web apps.

Closing the browser before a response has finished usually causes a socket exception not an IllegalStateException. Check the FAQ and make sure you're not doing any of the things listed there.
I agree. Here's the link:
