How do I get Sybase ASE to throw an error that Java can catch?

Good Morning All,

I am in need of some expert advice.  My environment is set up as follows:  
Database:  Sybase ASE 15.7, Open Client 15
Language:  Java 1.7.0_45

I have a stored procedure that is raising an error but java is not catching it.  Is there any way that I can force it.  I see ways to do this in other databases but nothing for Sybase.

I am performing a batch update using prepared statements and the update being called to perform the update is where the raiserror is thrown.

I am aware of the RAISERROR function.  I use it extensively.  My problem is this it is not being caught in the SQLException block.

In your Java try-catch, add a more generic exception-type first, and trace through your code to see what (if anything) is being caught.

Thank you for taking the time to answer John.  I just realized that I was not on the correct database sever and was calling a version of my stored procedure that does not have the raise error in it.  It is working correctly now.
