Help Regarding Exception Report Logs

Hello to all the ranchers, i am fairly new in java and currently working in Struts 1.3. My question is more related with java.
Following is the scenario and i am not sure regarding the best approach to be followed.

I want to make a error reporting functionality in my project where in I'm copying stacktrace and inserting it in the database's table say "errorlog" table with type of exception,date, user etc and other fields. But now what i have to do is :
I have to identify the package name, file, method and line number in which the exception occurred with the help of server logs that i have when exception occurs.
But the problem is that the log gives you the exception, file and the line number but it also contains errors that are not in my packages as in HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:710) etc given below:


java.lang.NullPointerException
com.candidate.query.CandSearchAction.execute(CandSearchAction.java:34)
org.apache.struts.action.RequestProcessor.processActionPerform(RequestProcessor.java:484)
org.apache.struts.action.RequestProcessor.proc ess(RequestProcessor.java:274)
org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.process(ActionServlet.java:1482)
org.apache.struts.action.ActionServlet.doPost(ActionServlet.java:525)
javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:710)
javax.servlet.http.HttpServlet.service(HttpServlet.java:803)

In above case, i got a null pointer exception in my CandSearchAction.java line number 34.
Now i want to know how to differentiate or extract only the line that points to my java/jsp file, so that i can filter them accordingly.

Can anyone please help regarding this situation or how to approach this problem.. is there any library that i can use or anything that could help me.
Waiting for a response that would help me.

Sachin,

Please don't post in all bold. It's equivalent to shouting!!! and is considered bad manners. I've removed yours this time and for more information, please check the EaseUp (←click) page.

Isn't it funny how there's always time and money enough to do it WRONG?
