Exception Management Architecture Guide

Exception Management Architecture Guide

This guide discusses design and implementation guidelines for exception management systems that use .NET technologies. It focuses on the process of handling exceptions within .NET-connected applications in a highly maintainable and supportable manner.


An exception management system should be well encapsulated and should abstract the details of logging and reporting from the application’s business logic. It should also be capable of generating metrics that can be monitored by operators to provide an insight into the current health and status of the application. This helps to create an application that can quickly and accurately notify operators of any problems it is experiencing, and can provide valuable information to assist developers and support services with problem resolution.
