DOMExceptions are thrown when one of the
DOM implementation classes discovers an error condition. The
architecture is defined in terms of the ExceptionCode, but in the
standard Java API this has been extended so the exception may also
carry a text string. Standard exception codes are:
INDEX_SIZE_ERR: index or size is negative, or greater than the
WSTRING_SIZE_ERR: the specified range of text does not fit into the
string representation used in this implementation. Only arises in
implementations whose strings have a maximum-size limit. The DOM
provides workarounds to support those languages, generally by
having the DOM extract a managable substring on their behalf.
HIERARCHY_REQUEST_ERR: user tried to insert a node somewhere it
doesn't belong... such as adding a child to a Text node.
WRONG_DOCUMENT_ERR: a node is used in a different document than the
one that created it (that doesn't support it). Currently, the DOM
doesn't promise that nodes can be moved from document to document
even if they're both using the same underlying implementation.
Level 2 of the DOM spec may address this.
INVALID_NAME_ERR: an invalid name is specified.
NO_DATA_ALLOWED_ERR: data is specified for a node which does not
NO_MODIFICATION_ALLOWED_ERR: an attempt is made to modify an object
where modifications are not allowed.
NOT_FOUND_ERR: an attempt was made to reference a node in a context
where it does not exist.
NOT_SUPPORTED_ERR: the implementation does not support the type of
INUSE_ATTRIBUTE_ERR: an attempt is made to add an attribute object
that is already in use elsewhere.
