I have this in my java code

Throwable t = Status.getException();

Status.getException returns OperationCanceledException.

Is there a way of comaring throwables like strings.

I want to check if the throwable is OperationCanceledException. IF yes.Put a message.


How do i accomplish this.

If i understand correctly, you just want to do this:

if( t instanceof OperationCanceledException ) {
  //do what you want if it is
} else {
  // do what you want if it isn't
}

t is a Throwable, but instanceof will check to see if the actual value (whatever was returned from the getException method call). If I am still misunderstanding, please post more information.
