Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-554) Error for missing documents is confusing
Date Tue, 28 Jun 2005 18:32:03 GMT
    [ ] 

Tim Williams commented on FOR-554:

After discussion here:

I went ahead and added a cocoon bugzilla report for it here:

But then, as I describe here:
I think more robust location resolution error handling may be in order too.

> Described at the top of this discussion:
> When tabs, site, and resources were made resolvable through locationmap, everything was
placed in a "when-exists" test.  That means instead of getting a meaningful error like "The
system cannot find the specified file." it goes straight to the transformer code and fails
because no generator exists.  An "otherwise" should have been used so that it will fail back
at the generator section and report a "good" error.
