 My 2c...: It's in the engine javadoc...But I admit it was harder to find 
than I thought. In old Cloudscape manuals this was documented...I couldn't 
find an obvious spot in the current manuals...(sorry if I was particularly 
blind & it's there).
I am wondering whether users are so used to browsing error message manuals 
for other databases that they have a hard time using the ErrorMessage VTI? 
Plus, you'd need ij...(or issue a separate sql command at least).
Maybe we can add more value to this document over the VTI by adding 
debugging tips and hints where it seems appropriate at some point...?
