The exception is not handled

Why the following code get the error: "The exception java.lang.Exception is not handled."?

public void performTask(javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest request, javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse response)         throws ServletException
{
     super.performTask(request, response);
    String cmdName = null;
    Command cmd = null;
    CommandMapObject mapObj = null;
     Result result = new Result();
     try{
          mapObj = this.getCmdMap().getCommandMapObject(this.getCmdName(request));
                  if (this.getCmdName(request).equalsIgnoreCase("login")){
                       this.login(request);
                       result.setTargetName("success");        
                  }else {
                       this.logout(request);
                          result.setTargetName("success");
                  }

                  forward(request, response, mapObj, result);
       
         } catch (SignOnException se) {
              result.setObject("errorMsg", se.getMessage());
              request = setRequestParameters(request, mapObj, result);
              result.setTargetName("fail");
              forward(request, response, mapObj, result);
         } catch (Exception e) {
                  throw new ServletException(e.getMessage());
         }
}

does the performTask() function in the superclass throw 'Exception'. If so, you need to catch it when you call super.performTask(request, response);

I tried your code, but got the same compile error.

pellepCommented:
doesn't the compile error include any indication as to where the error occured (filename, line-number or the likes)?

pellepCommented:
it could also be the call to forward(request, response, mapObj, result);
within the first catch section.
