I done error reporting in backend based on exceptions (Universal

Thanks! Here comes the punishment ;-)

There is two type of error:
First is invalid or missing parameters. For this case exist
InvalidParameters exceptions. For example usage and details please see
documentation of this exceptions.



I think documentation of webservice, you can generate it by rake doc:app ( I
hope hudson start building our documentation).

So as an example, which everyone will need to copy:;a=commitdiff;h=b7
f10188520c38d9a48db7b9e42f497408c8cd44 root = params[:time]
if root == nil
- render ErrorResult.error(404, 2, "format or internal error") and
return + raise [{:name => "Timezone", :error =>
"Missing"}] end

Why is it "Timezone" instead of "time"? AFAIK :name is supposed to
be the missing attribute, but here the entire record is missing.
Should it not be added to the "base"?

I don't enough experience with structure of error. Name is important for
frontend identification of error. I plan some testing and inform mailing list.

(And I don't like the need to specify an array explicitly, but I can
fix that later.)

I can fix it myself, good idea.

Also this break all modules which uses basicPluginTest, because it now expect
422 on empty update request. This is for your information, that behavior
change and you should also do it.
