All Implemented Interfaces:

InvocationTargetException is a checked exception that wraps an exception thrown by an invoked method or constructor.

As of release 1.4, this exception has been retrofitted to conform to the general purpose exception-chaining mechanism. The "target exception" that is provided at construction time and accessed via the #getTargetException() method is now known as the cause, and may be accessed via the Throwable#getCause() method, as well as the aforementioned "legacy method."

Method from java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException Detail:
 public Throwable getCause() 
    Returns the cause of this exception (the thrown target exception, which may be {@code null}).
 public Throwable getTargetException() 
    Get the thrown target exception.

    This method predates the general-purpose exception chaining facility. The Throwable#getCause() method is now the preferred means of obtaining this information.
