digitalmars.D.learn - Why I can't catch the exception?

exception.
digit 1 is printing, so exception is accrue after it, but why 
nothing in catch block?

Here is my code:

void dbSetup()
{
     try
     {
         //getcwd do not return correct path if run from task 
shoulder
         string dbpath = 
buildPath((thisExePath[0..((thisExePath.lastIndexOf("\\"))+1)]), 
dbname);
         if(!dbpath.exists)
         {
             writeln("It's seems you are runnining Application 
first time\n You should set up admin password");
             auto db = DataBase(dbname);
             writeln("1");
             auto usersCollection = db.collection!User("Users", 
true); // base on struct User
             usersCollection.put(User(0, "admin", "123", 
"admins")); // defaults
             writeln("2");
             writeln("[INFO] db with default credentials created");
         }

         else
         {
             writeln("[INFO] db exists");
             return;
         }
     }

     catch(Exception e)
     {
         writeln("Can't setup DB");
         writeln(e.msg);
     }

}

     catch(Exception e)
You are catching Exception, but it is throwing Error. They are two separate things. You shouldn't typically catch Error, instead try to fix the bug it indicates. But you can if you want by catch(Error e)

The assertion is being thrown in the storage.d and backtracking it basically points to line 115 (usersCollection), so am going to guess based on error messages alone that you are passing a struct/class that doesn't match inputs that it is expecting for one of the elements it needs to store. So my advice is to look at the User struct/class, and then look at the DB's User table. But this is just a far thrown guess at the problem.

You are very close. This is just a limitation of the current database code which can only handle the simplest structs. https://gitlab.com/PiotrekDlang/DraftLib/issues/4 Piotrek

An AssertError is not an Exception (in the narrow sense) [1], but an Error. Both Exception and Error [2] derive from Throwable [3]. An Error signals an unrecoverable problem. You should not try to catch and handle them. An AssertError in particular is thrown when an `assert` fails. In your case the assert is in database\storage.d, line 312. A failing assert signals means that there's an error in the program. A condition is not met that should be met at all times. The compiler will let you catch Error and Throwable, but you really shouldn't do that. Instead fix your code so that it doesn't fail the assert.
