File upload blocked through behaviour, how to show proper message?

Hi everyone,

I need to block certain file uploads and show a proper message, which should explain the exact reason why such file was blocked (there could be a number of reasons). I developed a behaviour in Alfresco which works perfectly: every time there's something wrong with the uploaded file an exception is thrown, so the upload fails. Example:


….
// If fileName does not start with "TEST", block upload
if (!fileName.startsWith("TEST")) {
   throw new AlfrescoRuntimeException("Filename " + fileName + " should start with TEST");      
}
….


I assume the uploads are always done via Flash Uploader, so here are two pictures of the scenario.

Before uploading:

After uploading a file (with something wrong in it):

File upload is properly blocked, but the error message I get in the Share panel is something like "Failed to execute transaction-level behaviour public abstract void org.alfresco.repo.node.NodeServicePolicies$OnCreateNodePolicy.onCreateNode(org.alfresco.service.cmr.repository.ChildAssociationRef) in transaction cf03a86a-4eeb-40bb-8ce7-ddd91753c6e7", which is not what I want (e.g. "Filename AAA_001_A.doc should start with TEST"). In fact, the AlfrescoRuntimeException I'm throwing gets wrapped into another AlfrescoRuntimeException:

The root cause of the exception is my AlfrescoRuntimeException, and I want my own message to be shown in the panel. In other words, I should somehow "bypass" the exception wrapping of the behaviour.
How can I achieve that?
