I am working on it now. There is some question in my mind as to
what should be done on an error, and my inclination is to do this:
1. Set up logging levels on a per-table basis, with
defaults that can be set with DatabaseDefault:
DatabaseDefault LOG_ERROR_CATALOG 1
DatabaseDefault LOG_ERROR_SESSION 1
DatabaseDefault LOG_ERROR_GLOBAL 0
DatabaseDefault DIE_ERROR 0
2. Log errors to the catalog error.log by default.
Database inventory LOG_ERROR_CATALOG 0|1*
3. Log errors to the session always if an admin, and
controlled by configuration if not.
Database inventory LOG_ERROR_SESSION 0|1*
This would have the effect of giving a big red error message
when such an event as failing to create a record occured. In
most cases, you would be able to use the <-Back button and
fix the error and resubmit.
4. Die at the page level (500 error) only if that is explicit
request in config for that table:
Database inventory DIE_ERROR 0*|1
5. Log errors globally only on explicit request:
Database inventory LOG_ERROR_GLOBAL 0*|1
6. LENGTH_EXCEPTION errors would go into warnings if they
are handled with truncate.
Does this seem reasonable?
