XML Error Response
If a command block contains an error or is unsuccessful, the specified action is not executed. Instead, the Siebel Business XML user interface retains its current state and the SWE returns an error. Based on the markup format you have specified, an error response is returned as XML, HTML, or WML.
An XML error response contains an <ERROR> tag within the payload. Descriptive text for the error is enclosed between the open and close <ERROR> tags.
