MonoRail Exception Chaining

MonoRail comes with a nice exception handling mechanism. It's pretty well documented so I won't explain how it works.

MonoRail also provides an handler that sends an email with exception and request details. I got tired of getting this email in my development environment, so here's what I came up with:

    public class ExceptionFilterHandler : AbstractExceptionHandler


        public override void Process(IRailsEngineContext context)


            if (context.Request.IsLocal)






Pretty simple and it does the trick. This also gives you the ability login to the server in production if you have access and see the exception detail in the browser instead of getting an email. It checks to see the web request was made from the local machine.
