  1. The stacktrace gets lost with your modification. Imho, the best alternative would be to not catch the exception at all and change the throws clause of the method accordingly.

  2. Hey Stefan,
    thanks for your reply. You are right. I have to say that in this case the stack trace was not very use full.

    Anyway with JUnit4 the @Text(expected = MyException.class) annotation makes live much easier.
