OMI - Database Errors

1995 Version of ANSI (Equivalent to Current ISO Version) of Standard

Right Hand Pointer

4.9.1 Database errors

Implementers may choose to handle errors arising from database operations in the same way whether the database is local or remote. OMI responses indicate errors like undefined global variable, unauthorized operation, reference to an undefined environment, or maximum length exceeded. OMI does not support the MUMPS naked reference because that would require the server to retain information about past transactions. Agents shall detect naked reference errors.

OMI does not specify the timing of responses to database update requests. Servers that defer disk writing may be implemented to notify their own system manager of a failure to write, and not to delay their OMI response until the disk operation completes.
