Create your XYZProjectException, and then have all your other specific exceptions extend your overall exception

public class XYZProjectException extends Exception {}
public class SomeSpecificException extends XYZProjectException {}

If you mean to reverse engineer this into the existing exception hierarchy, sorry - but since there's already a hierarchy in place, use that instead?

thanks for your reply

yes, i could able to understand ur reply and i need to group only three exception in that one instead of making a sub class to the exception.......

for example i have a third party library and i need to add that package exception name into the XYZProjectException  ??

I think you have seen in many third party library where they may have their own exception name ...... and it is more clear that they have grouped many exception.

what you might be able to do is add extra constructors to the XYZProjectException to construct it with these other exceptions:

public class XYZProjectException extends Exception {
    public XYZProjectException( ThirdPartyException e ) {
        this( e.getMessage() ); // or something like that that is useful to you!
    }
}

then when calling:

try {
   // something from 3rd party library
}
catch( ThirdPartyException e ) {
    throw new XYZProjectException( e );
}

hope this helps.
C.

sorry, missed your second post at 9.20...

yes, basically, create your own exception, and try{}catch{} other exceptions, constructing your exception with details from the caught exceptions...
