Make search sources more robust when processing of a source feed fails

Reported by Walter McGinnis | November 18th, 2010 @ 02:51 PM

Right now if a search source has an error processing results, it can cause the calling application to have a total page failure. I.e. something is malformed in a feed result raises an error in external search sources code and the calling application throws a 500 page to the user.

It would be better if there were two levels of error catching:

  • if the total feed fails, return a (configurable) "Service currently unavailable" as a single entry

  • if an individual entry fails to be processed, return a (configurable) "entry unavailable" for that entry

In both instances, the raised error should be logged.
