error code for Network error - 208 ?

Post by slaxman » Tue 08 Apr 2014 20:06

for the exception below, devart returns error code as 208.

EXCEPTION (Devart.Data.Oracle.OracleException): Network error:: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond

However, 'ORA-00208' has a different message by oracle --- 'number of control file names exceeds limit of string'

so, what is the reliable way to use the code as they seem to clash? also, I did not find documentation on devart's error codes.
