 * Used to report attempts to set an unsupported element
 * When the attempt to set the element is made,
 * the code does not not know the name of the task/type
 * based on a mapping from the classname to the task/type.
 * However one class may be used by a lot of task/types.
 * This exception may be caught by code that does know
 * the task/type and it will reset the message to the
 * correct message.
 * This will be done once (in the case of a recursive
 * call to handlechildren).
 * @since Ant 1.6.3
public class UnsupportedElementException extends BuildException {

    private String element;

     * Constructs an unsupported element exception.
     * @param msg The string containing the message.
     * @param element The name of the incorrect element.
    public UnsupportedElementException(String msg, String element) {
        this.element = element;

     * Get the element that is wrong.
     * @return the element name.
    public String getElement() {
        return element;
