Anything that happens during a run of DOTS Address Validation 3 that causes it to be unable to finish its normal processing is an error. If an error occurs, something similar to the following will result instead of the normal/typical output: 

Example:



*Error!*

  <Type>Authorization</Type>
  <TypeCode>1</TypeCode>
  <Desc>Your license key does not work on this service.</Desc>
  <DescCode>8</DescCode>


There are four error types described below.

Error type 2: User Input


User Input errors are caused when a user inputs an invalid value or fails to provide a certain input field altogether. If a developer creates a request and mistypes a parameter name, it will probably cause a User Input Error.

*Deprecated DescCode that are no longer used.

Error type 3: Service Objects Fatal


The Desc will always be the same and the DescCode has no meaning. This is standard to all Generation 2 DOTS Web Services. This is a rare error that signals either a bug in the DOTS Address Validation 2 service, or a Network/Connectivity issue.

Error type 4: Domain Specific


Domain specific errors represent the common errors seen in Service Objects services. Domain Specific errors indicate that the service completed successfully but the result is not good.
