can anybody tell what is the reason why  the skip limit is ignored.... if skip limit is set to 1 and if i have 3 bad record.... it does not stop after processing first record...........

I am trying to call the skip by executor class

but still it gives the same error.....


o    try {

o    // job execution

o    }catch (SkipLimitExceededException skipLimitExceededException) {

§  System.exit(1);

o    } catch (Exception exception) {

§  if (log.isErrorEnabled()) {

§  log.error("Error performing job" + exception.getMessage());

o    }

o    log.debug(exception);


o    }finally {

o    context.close();

o    }


o    System.exit(0);


o   }// end of Executor.java

Open in new window

public boolean shouldSkip(Throwable throwable, int skipCount)
		throws SkipLimitExceededException{
		StringBuffer stringBuffer = new StringBuffer();
		if (throwable instanceof FlatFileParseException) {
			int linenumber = ((FlatFileParseException) throwable).getLineNumber();
			String input = ((FlatFileParseException) throwable).getInput();
			stringBuffer.append("Parsing exception encountered on line #" + linenumber + "; input = " + input);
		}else {
		if (getSkipLimit() <= skipCount && getSkipLimit() > 0) {
			SkipLimitExceededException skipLimitExceededException = new SkipLimitExceededException(
					skipCount, throwable);
			log.error("Skip Limit Exceeded "+skipLimit);
			log.debug("Skip Limit Exceeded", skipLimitExceededException);
			throw skipLimitExceededException;
		}catch(SkipLimitExceededException skipLimitExceededException){
		return true;

Not sure. But this :

if (getSkipLimit() <= skipCount && getSkipLimit() > 0) {

Open in new window

could anyway be simply :

if (skipCount >= getSkipLimit()){
