For some reason, this whole line does not show up altogether.
Either ill leave the first or the second statement.
Im just playing around with the try/catch exceptions. Any fact?

Throwable.getCause() can return null. If it does, then your e.getCause().toString() will throw a NullPOinterException; thus before your error message is assembled for printing, another exception will be thrown, and this println() will never be invoked.

Its also possible that this code does not catch RuntimeExceptions such as NullPointer or IllegalArgument or somesuch. In addition to what Ernest said, try catching Throwable instead of exception.

Also, its possible that no exception is thrown. If none is thrown, then none is caught, and thus the line is not printed.
