InvalidCountryCode error

Post by AntonFrolov » Fri Jan 31, 2014 11:24 am


To get bibliography for document AP 2150 A I used following query: ... 0.A/biblio

To get fulltext for document AP 2150 A I used following query: ... A/fulltext

which returned error message:

<fault xmlns="">
At least one reference in the request has a unsupported country code: Request for fulltext for com.espacenet.domain.core.impl.PatentApplicationImpl: key=DocumentKeys$DocumentKeyImpl: contains NumberTriple: CC='AP', NUM='2150', KC='A', input='null', format=DOCDB; pubCycle=null; was deemed invalid.

If this document doesn't contain fulltext, expected message is

<message>No results found</message>

Why in case of country AP I get CLIENT.InvalidCountryCode error?

Dear user,

We will check that - its seems we have no full text but your are correct about error message being wrong.

I will get back to you on that,

Kind regards,

OPS support
