A Guide on How to Handle Errors in ScalarDL

This document sets out some guidelines for handling errors in ScalarDL.


ScalarDL expects users to use Client SDKs to properly interact with ScalarDL system. When an error occurs, the Client SDKs return an Exception (or an Error in Javascript-based SDKs) with a status code to users. Users are expected to check the status code to identify the cause of errors.

How to write error handling

Here, we explain the way to handle errors in more detail.

In Java Client SDK, the SDK throws a ClientException so users can handle errors by catching the exception as follows:

ClientService clientService = ...;
try {
// interact with ScalarDL through a ClientService object
} catch (ClientException) {
// e.getStatusCode() returns the status of the error

You can also handle errors similarly in Javascript-based Client SDKs.

const clientService = ...; // ClientService object
try {

} catch (e) {
// e.code returns the status of the error
// e.message returns the error message

Status codes

The status codes are grouped in five classes as similarly as HTTP status codes:

  • Successful statues (200-299)
  • Validation errors (300-399)
  • User errors (400-499)
  • Server errors (500-599)
  • Client errors (600-699)
