Best way to send a message from PO.beforeDelete failure

You've got a class thar extends PO . You want to check some logic that prevents the deletion of a record. You override the method PO.before(delete):boolean in your PO class.

Now you need to send some diagnostic info back to the client. You can't just have a message 'failed to delete'.

Code: Select all
...check my precondition..
if fails
            throw new MyRuntimeException("Sorry you cant delete this record. This is the reason why.");
        return true;

Disclaimer: not sure if this is the best practice. Will keep this thread updated as I learn.
