The CIM Object Manager generates exception messages that are used by all the clients. The MOF Compiler appends a line to the exception indicating where in a .mof file the error occurred. From these exceptions, client applications can generate error messages that are more meaningful to the end-user.
CIM clients can be used as XML or RMI clients. Currently, XML supports only a subset of these exceptions. If you choose to use an XML client, be aware that you may not receive all the information contained in the exception message, and that you may loose parameter information.
