Doubts in creation of Exception Classes

Former Member

Hi friends,

I gothroughed the method of creating user specific Exception Classes (say ZCX_TEST ). If iam about to create it is automatically created as a subclass for the class CX_STATIC_CHECK. Then they have mentioned the follwoing statement ...

" you can decide whether the texts for your newly created exception class should be recreated and stored in the OTR, or whether you want use existing message classes for this exception class "

while creating the class type.

What does the Above statement mean???

How to go about it??

At what scenario I have to use both???

How to work with OTR ???

Expecting ur answers!!!

Thanks in advance!!
