How to catch non-MVC and non-REST exceptions in Spring Boot

I've been able to find endless amounts of tutorials on how to catch unhandled exceptions in Spring MVC or Spring REST, but what I want to know is how to catch unhandled exceptions without using the Spring Web framework at all.

I am writing an application which does not have a web component, and I am not going to import Spring Web only for exception handling.

When a

throws an exception that goes unhandled, I need to catch it so that I can log it properly to Raygun.

For example, consider this method in a Service that purposely throws an uncaught exception:

@Scheduled(fixedDelay = 100)
public void doSomething() {
throw new RuntimeException("Uh oh!");

Its output will be:

2017-08-16 00:19:40.202 ERROR 91168 --- [pool-1-thread-1] o.s.s.s.TaskUtils$LoggingErrorHandler : Unexpected error occurred in scheduled task.

java.lang.RuntimeException: Uh oh!
at com.mitchtalmadge.example.ExampleService.doSomething( ~[classes/:na]
at com.mitchtalmadge.example.ExampleService$$FastClassBySpringCGLIB$$1dd464d8.invoke(<generated>) ~[classes/:na]
at org.springframework.cglib.proxy.MethodProxy.invoke( ~[spring-core-4.3.10.RELEASE.jar:4.3.10.RELEASE]
at org.springframework.aop.framework.CglibAopProxy$DynamicAdvisedInterceptor.intercept(

How do I catch that?

Is there no easy way to do this?

You can use the aop in spirngframework,first you should config the aop configuration.

<bean id="aspect" class="com.zhuyiren.Main"/>

    <aop:aspect ref="aspect">
        <aop:after-throwing method="after" throwing="ex" pointcut="execution(* com.zhuyiren.service..*.*(..)),args(ex)"/>

and then you should declare a aspect class has method be named after:

public class Main {

public void after(JoinPoint point,Throwable ex){
    System.out.println("catch error:"+ex.getMessage());

When the service is throwning a error,the method will catch and resolve it. In my Sevice,i make a ArithmeticException,and run the application,the print is:

execution(TeacherInfo com.zhuyiren.service.TeacherService.getTeacherInfo())
catch error:/ by zero

Of course,the above configuration is depends on xml,you also can do it through Annotation such as @Aspect,@Pointcut,@AfterThrowing.
