Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Understanding Stack Trace

Stack trace is a collection of methods and objects that lists from the origin of the exception to the point where the nested call begins.
class StackTrace

    int divideByzero()
        return 100/0;
    static void main(String[]arr)
        StackTrace s=new StackTrace();


When the above code is executed, the output you get on the screen might look like this:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ArithmeticException: 
/ by zero
        at StackTrace.divideByzero(StackTrace.java:10)
        at StackTrace.(StackTrace.java:6)
        at StackTrace.main(StackTrace.java:14)

From the above code, you can see the line of execution of the program. It has to read from the bottom:

1. The main method is called.

2. The constructor (init) is called.

3. The method with the Exception is called.

This how an exception is propagated through the code.
