we are working with Nat 22.214.171.124 for Unix. Our admin recently activated the XML SAX parser option for us, now I’m trying out the PARSE XML statement.
In my test program, I read XML from a work file and then apply the PARSE XML statement. This works as long the XML is ok, but if I read a file with incorrect XML, this results in a Natural error such as 8311 or 8312. Even if I reset the *ERROR-NR an ‘On Error’ block, I cannot reach the code that comes after the PARSE XML statement.
I would like to be able to transform such error situations in a ‘User Error’ situation where I can react appropriately, e.g. do some logging or sending an email from within the routine ‘Attention - you sent us an invalid XML’ or something like that, rather than just abort the current process.#
It would be good to make sure to have at least well-formed XML beforehand, but I thought that’s what the parser is actually there fore?
What would be the best way to handle such errors:
- placing the PARSE XML in a subprogram with its own ‘ON ERROR’ routine ?
- Any other alternatives?
Thanks very much in advance for your comments.
