3.7. Error Handling

Up until now, the possibility for error has been conveniently overlooked for clarity of course. But since it's likely, if not certain, that one will inevitably occur; you should be aware of the available error handling methods and codes.

3.7.1 Methods

The method used is determined by the value of error_format:

  • "0" - Redirect eQuest (default)
  • "1" - Output
  • "2" - Redirect ATS

3.7.1.1 Redirect eQuest

Redirects the user to the eQuest error page. If the error is due to incorrect or lack of information passed by the client a descriptive message is shown along with the error code in decimal format. If the error is an internal and critical eQuest error, a more general page is shown.

3.7.1.2 Output

Simply outputs the error code in decimal format as response content. This method is commonly used by ATSs that wish to completely wrap our application's response.

3.7.1.3 Redirect ATS

Redirects the user to the value of error_url and includes an error_code parameter that contains the decimal error code.
