your ERP vendor alter the REST API contract and does not inform you about changes well into the platform upgrade program and you only notice it by chance 4 days ahead of things suppose to go to production....
Long version : We are upgrading our ERP platform to their newer version with Grid architecture and all. They have three ways to call their APIs via COM dll, SOAP and REST. While COM dll and SOAP did not change the REST no longer send Exception but send as 200 OK response with details of error in Response in this new version. They did not inform about this change and just by chance I found out and I have seven different applications using REST to call various APIs and I have four days before this thing go to Production.... Now I will have few long nights or they better give explanation on why REST is changed and not SOAP and why there is no official communication...
If I know our ERP vendor well I know their response will be "we will talk to our developers but in the mean time you implement work around" and that will be the end of it....

And you run and you run to catch up to the sun
But it's sinking, and racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way,
but you're older, shorter of breath and one day closer to death
Decrease the belief in God, and you increase the numbers of those who wish to play at being God by being “society’s supervisors,” who deny the existence of divine standards, but are very serious about imposing their own standards on society.-Neal A. Maxwell
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
