General Programming Overview

All Request Documents have a required element called <TestMode>. TestMode must be set to Yes, this allows the exchange of generic information for testing applications without issuing live data. Once testing is complete switch to No to initiate live data.

All Response Documents contain 4 error handling elements <Code>, <Element>, <Fault>, and <Message>. Verification is required for each response. If the <Code> element contains a value then an error has occurred. Proceed to other elements for description information about the specific failure.

All Elements are case sensitive to ensure compatibility with existing programming languages. If casing is not correct the system will assume the element is missing and the action will fail during validation.

Adding the <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> prefix on the first line of the XML document is not mandatory within our Request Documents, however it is common practice. All Response XML Documents will contain this prefix.

When programming against Saia's XML Documents do not access the elements based on their position within the document. Access the element by name only. Saia reserves the right to add new elements into this document at any location based on customer requests and requirements.
