Last few days you seem to have had problems with a number of service outages. I want to enhance my code to handle these without crashing our other systems, using timeouts and xml validity checking. Any suggestion of a 'broken' API page I can connect to, in order to debug my code?
Usually if our API servers are offline, you will either get a 500 error, or you will get a timed out response from our server. The best way to handle these would be to include error catching in your code so that if this happens, it redirects them to a page on your end that says that it is temporarily not working. If you have any questions, please let me know.
