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

			String input = ((FlatFileParseException) throwable).getInput();
			stringBuffer.append("Parsing exception encountered on line #" + linenumber + "; input = " + input);
		}else {
