After i catch the Exception thrown, in the catch block, is there any way i could modify i.e; suppress some function calls at the bottom most level before printing using the printstacktace method.

Now i am printing mystacktrace into file. If i am printing the trace for execute method in struts Action class, there is a long trace printed before the call to execute method. Can i suppress that by call to some method.

Please help me.

Have a look at the setStacktrace method in the Throwable class.

Consider Paul's rocket mass heater.
