HTTP Exception Middleware

This module processes Python exceptions that relate to HTTP exceptions
by defining a set of exceptions, all subclasses of HTTPException, and a
request handler (`middleware`) that catches these exceptions and turns
them into proper responses.

This module defines exceptions according to RFC 2068 [1]_ : codes with
100-300 are not really errors; 400's are client errors, and 500's are
server errors.  According to the WSGI specification [2]_ , the application
can call ``start_response`` more then once only under two conditions:
(a) the response has not yet been sent, or (b) if the second and
subsequent invocations of ``start_response`` have a valid ``exc_info``
argument obtained from ``sys.exc_info()``.  The WSGI specification then
requires the server or gateway to handle the case where content has been
sent and then an exception was encountered.

Exceptions in the 5xx range and those raised after ``start_response``
has been called are treated as serious errors and the ``exc_info`` is
filled-in with information needed for a lower level module to generate a
stack trace and log information.

00095 class HTTPException(Exception):
    the HTTP exception base class

    This encapsulates an HTTP response that interrupts normal application
    flow; but one which is not necessarly an error condition. For
    example, codes in the 300's are exceptions in that they interrupt
    normal processing; however, they are not considered errors.

    This class is complicated by 4 factors:

      1. The content given to the exception may either be plain-text or
         as html-text.

      2. The template may want to have string-substitutions taken from
         the current ``environ`` or values from incoming headers. This
         is especially troublesome due to case sensitivity.

      3. The final output may either be text/plain or text/html
         mime-type as requested by the client application.

      4. Each exception has a default explanation, but those who
         raise exceptions may want to provide additional detail.


           the HTTP status code for the exception

           remainder of the status line (stuff after the code)

           a plain-text explanation of the error message that is
           not subject to environment or header substitutions;
           it is accessible in the template via %(explanation)s

           a plain-text message customization that is not subject
           to environment or header substitutions; accessible in
           the template via %(detail)s

           a content fragment (in HTML) used for environment and
           header substitution; the default template includes both
           the explanation and further detail provided in the

           a sequence of headers which are required for proper
           construction of the exception


         a plain-text override of the default ``detail``

         a list of (k,v) header pairs

         a plain-text additional information which is
         usually stripped/hidden for end-users

    To override the template (which is HTML content) or the plain-text
    explanation, one must subclass the given exception; or customize it
    after it has been created.  This particular breakdown of a message
    into explanation, detail and template allows both the creation of
    plain-text and html messages for various clients as well as
    error-free substitution of environment variables and headers.

00259 class HTTPError(HTTPException):
    base class for status codes in the 400's and 500's

    This is an exception which indicates that an error has occurred,
    and that any work in progress should not be committed.  These are
    typically results in the 400's and 500's.

# 3xx Redirection
#  This class of status code indicates that further action needs to be
#  taken by the user agent in order to fulfill the request. The action
#  required MAY be carried out by the user agent without interaction with
#  the user if and only if the method used in the second request is GET or
#  HEAD. A client SHOULD detect infinite redirection loops, since such
#  loops generate network traffic for each redirection.

00279 class HTTPRedirection(HTTPException):
    base class for 300's status code (redirections)

    This is an abstract base class for 3xx redirection.  It indicates
    that further action needs to be taken by the user agent in order
    to fulfill the request.  It does not necessarly signal an error

    Since a 'Location' header is a required attribute of 301, 302, 303,

    make this easy.  While this has the same parameters as HTTPException,

00592 class HTTPExceptionHandler:

           This attribute determines for what exceptions a stack
           trace is kept for lower level reporting; by default, it

           To keep a stack trace for 4xx, HTTPClientError exceptions,
           set this to 400.

    This middleware catches any exceptions (which are subclasses of
    ``HTTPException``) and turns them into proper HTTP responses.
    Note if the headers have already been sent, the stack trace is
    always maintained as this indicates a programming error.

    ``httpexceptions`` middleware; this catches any
    ``paste.httpexceptions.HTTPException`` exceptions (exceptions like
    ``HTTPNotFound``, ``HTTPMovedPermanently``, etc) and turns them
    into proper HTTP responses.

    ``warning_level`` can be an integer corresponding to an HTTP code.
    Any code over that value will be passed 'up' the chain, potentially
    reported on by another piece of middleware.
