I have a function which returns a DSObject. One of my other function is calling this function and it gets all children under destination Object(destObj) and the associated title along with it. If the title matches the "desttitle" then i want to get the handle of existing collection   dObj = dssession.getObject(oldhandle); else i want to return dObj as destObj. Please advice  i think my return statements are not setup correctly
public DSObject findduplicateunderdestination (String destitle, DSObject srcObj, DSObject destObj) {
  DSObject dObj=destObj;
       try {
  DSObjectIterator Children = destObj.getDestinations(
                 DSLinkDesc.containment, 1, ss );
            Iterator sortedIter = sortListOfDSObjects( Children );
             int destsize= Children.size();
       while (sortedIter.hasNext()){
          System.out.println("Destination Size is:" + destsize);
         DSObject destObj1 = (DSObject) sortedIter.next();
String titlecompare= destObj1.getTitle();
DSHandle oldhandle = destObj1.getHandle();
if (destitle.equals(titlecompare)) {
  dObj = dssession.getObject(oldhandle);
System.out.println("dObj with duplicate is:" + dObj);
System.out.println("string to compare is :" + titlecompare);
System.out.println("string to compare is :" + destitle);
 return dObj;
   // doCreateCollection(srcObj,olddestObj);
     else {
      //   doCreateCollection(srcObj,destObj);
 System.out.println("dObj without duplicate is:" + dObj);
    return dObj;
          catch ( DSInvalidLicenseException dse ) {
            System.out.println( "The DocuShare server does not have the require license." );
            System.exit( -1 );
        } catch ( DSAuthorizationException dse ) {
            System.out.println( "You do not have the proper permissions for this operation." );
           System.exit( -1 );
        } catch ( DSException dse ) {
            System.exit( -1 );
// System.out.println("Destination Handle is third time :" + dObj);
 System.out.println("final dObj is:" + dObj);
   return dObj;
