For lack of a nail (Java version)

// For the lack of a nail,
throw new HorseshoeNailNotFoundException("no nails!");

// For the lack of a horseshoe,
EquestrianDoctor.getLocalInstance().getHorseDispatcher()
.dispatch();

// For the lack of a horse,
RidersGuild.getRiderNotificationSubscriberList().getBroadcaster()
.run(
new BroadcastMessage(StableFactory.getNullHorseInstance()));

// For the lack of a rider,
MessageDeliverySubsystem.getLogger().logDeliveryFailure(

new MessageMedium(MessageType.VERBAL),
new MessageTransport(MessageTransportType.MOUNTED_RIDER),
new MessageSessionDestination(BattleManager.getRoutingInfo(
BattleLocation.NEAREST))),
MessageFailureReasonCode.UNKNOWN_RIDER_FAILURE);

// For the lack of a message,
((BattleNotificationSender)
BattleResourceMediator.getMediatorInstance().getResource(
BattleParticipant.PROXY_PARTICIPANT,
BattleResource.BATTLE_NOTIFICATION_SENDER)).sendNotification(
((BattleNotificationBuilder)
(BattleResourceMediator.getMediatorInstance().getResource(
BattleOrganizer.getBattleParticipant(Battle.Participant.GOOD_GUYS),
BattleResource.BATTLE_NOTIFICATION_BUILDER))).buildNotification(
BattleOrganizer.getBattleState(BattleResult.BATTLE_LOST),

// For the lack of a battle,

}
} catch (InterruptedException ix) {
