Abstract This paper describes the development of a model for the reflective treatment of both application and environmentally sourced exceptions. We show how a variety of exception models can be implemented using an exception handler at the metalevel. The approach described allows for better separation of exceptional and normal error-free program code producing systems that are easier to understand and therefore maintain.
