Stack Overflow should add an organizational structure for programming error messages and exceptions.
For example, I was working on MS SQL 2005 server and received the error message
Operating System error 5(Access is Denied) ...
It would be cool if there was a section in Stack Overflow that would organize this to help me find a solution to my error. I would be able to select "MS SQL 2005," and the site would show a list of error messages related specifically to MS SQL 2005. Then I could pick from the list, or search it for "Operating System error 5(Access is Denied)."
Since Stack Overflow is a question-based site, think of this as asking the question "How can I resolve the MS SQL error message 'Operating System error 5(Access is Denied)'?"
Basically, I want all the Stack Overflow goodness, but organized by product and error message.
I believe there is something to be gained by grouping the error messages. What if the solution is not in Error 5 but in Error 6, which is a similar error? Grouping would help.
I think this would be especially cool for compiler errors. Wouldn't it be convenient if all the Java
String errors were in one place, with solutions and suggestions?
