Subject [jira] [Commented] (CASSANDRA-3979) Consider providing error code with exceptions (and documenting them)
Date Wed, 05 Sep 2012 15:56:07 GMT

Sylvain Lebresne commented on CASSANDRA-3979:
---------------------------------------------

Ok, I've committed the patch with Paul small fix (and the required update to the binary protocol
spec).

I haven't yet make the change to expose the extra information to thrift but I'll attach the
patch for that soonish (I wanted to commit the rest in the meantime because it's a bitch to
rebase).

> It could be a good idea to assign documented error code for the different exception raised.
Currently, one may have to parse the exception string (say if one wants to know if its 'create
keyspace' failed because the keyspace already exists versus other kind of exception), but
it means we cannot improve the error message at the risk of breaking client code. Adding documented
error codes with the message would avoid this.
