mongoc_errors — Error Reporting « index

Description

Many C Driver functions report errors by returning false or -1 and filling out a bson_error_t structure with an error domain, error code, and message. Use domain to determine which subsystem generated the error, and code for the specific error. message is a human-readable error description.

Setting the Error API Version

The driver’s error reporting began with a design flaw: when the error domain is MONGOC_ERROR_COLLECTION, MONGOC_ERROR_QUERY, or MONGOC_ERROR_COMMAND, the error code might originate from the server or the driver. An application cannot always know where an error originated, and therefore cannot tell what the code means.

For example, if mongoc_collection_update sets the error’s domain to MONGOC_ERROR_COLLECTION and its code to 24, the application cannot know whether 24 is the generic driver error code MONGOC_ERROR_COLLECTION_UPDATE_FAILED or the specific server error code “LockTimeout”.

To fix this flaw while preserving backward compatibility, the C Driver 1.4 introduces “Error API Versions”. Version 1, the default Error API Version, maintains the flawed behavior. Version 2 adds a new error domain, MONGOC_ERROR_SERVER. In Version 2, error codes originating on the server always have error domain MONGOC_ERROR_SERVER or MONGOC_ERROR_WRITE_CONCERN. When the driver uses Version 2 the application can always determine the origin and meaning of error codes. New applications should use Version 2, and existing applications should be updated to use Version 2 as well.

Error Source API Version 1 API Version 2
mongoc_cursor_error MONGOC_ERROR_QUERY MONGOC_ERROR_SERVER
mongoc_client_command, mongoc_database_command, and other command functions MONGOC_ERROR_QUERY MONGOC_ERROR_SERVER
mongoc_collection_count_with_opts, mongoc_client_get_database_names, and other command helper functions MONGOC_ERROR_QUERY MONGOC_ERROR_SERVER
mongoc_collection_insert mongoc_collection_insert_bulk mongoc_collection_update mongoc_collection_remove MONGOC_ERROR_COMMAND MONGOC_ERROR_SERVER
mongoc_bulk_operation_execute MONGOC_ERROR_COMMAND MONGOC_ERROR_SERVER
Write-concern timeout MONGOC_ERROR_WRITE_CONCERN MONGOC_ERROR_WRITE_CONCERN

The Error API Versions are defined with MONGOC_ERROR_API_VERSION_LEGACY and MONGOC_ERROR_API_VERSION_2. Set the version with mongoc_client_set_error_api or mongoc_client_pool_set_error_api.
