# Error Handler

Route handlers can either throw an error or return a failed Future (if in NIO mode). Throwing or returning a error will result in a 500 status response and the error will be logged.

Just throw the error, Jiny will handle it for you:

// Handle error
server.get("/panic", ctx -> {
    throw new RuntimeException("Panicked!");

Then when a client hit /panic, Jiny server will respond:

HTTP/1.1 500 Internal Server Error
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 8
