Using Excpetional with RobustThread

Hey guys,

I'd like to use exceptional with an collection of daemons I'm thinking about building with RobustThread.

The problem I have is dealing with RT's own excpetion handling.

The RT documentation gives this as an example:

require 'rubygems'
require 'robustthread'
RobustThread.logger ='mydaemon.log')
RobustThread.exception_handler do |exception|
pid = fork do
  RobustThread.loop(:seconds => 30, :label => "Do something awesome!") do
Process.detach pid`

While I could wrap do_something_awesome in a Exceptional.rescue block, it seems that it should go into RobustThread's exception_handler for neatness sake if nothing else.

Is such a thing possible or do I take the obvious route?

    Hi Adam,

    I don't know anything about Robust Thread, but if it has it's own exception_handler then you could patch that to include:
    Exceptional.handle(e, 'optional error message')

    Hopefully this will work for you!
