7.4 Error handling in user code called by the server

Error handlers are wrapped around user code called by the POA in response to incoming CORBA requests. By default, an error is handled and a CORBA exception is returned to the client.

If the variable corba:*orb-status-output* is set to a non-nil value, a backtrace is printed to the given stream designator.

If the variable corba:*poa-break-on-error-in-server* is set to a non- nil value, the debugger will be entered. When the user opts to continue, a CORBA exception will be returned to the client. Note that while debugging is going on, a synchronous call from a client will be hanging, waiting for a response.
