Where can I get a list of error codes and their error message strings?

You can find a list of error codes, and message strings documented here:

http://developer.ebay.com/devzone/XML/docs/Reference/ebay/Errors/ErrorMessages.htm#ErrorsByNumber


The documentation also has a "top error codes returned per call" document that lists typical errors returned for some of the most commonly used calls in production: http://developer.ebay.com/devzone/XML/docs/Reference/ebay/Errors/errorsByCall.html

The "top error codes" document is really useful for SDK users when building out a full implementation of using the CallRetry object available in the SDKs.
See these Knowledge Base articles for more information on using the CallRetry object:
.NET SDK: https://ebaydts.com/eBayKBDetails?KBid=470
Java SDK: https://ebaydts.com/eBayKBDetails?KBid=474

How well did this answer your question?
