Specific response status codes

No specific response status codes returned.


The version triplet returned by this operation (version_maj, version_min and version_rev) is the implementation version of the specific Parsec provider. For the Core Provider, this version is the implementation version of the whole Parsec service.

The providers vector returned is in order of provider priority: the highest priority providers come first. The core provider will always come last. The provider at position zero, if not the core provider, can be treated as default provider by the client. Clients should still check the supported opcodes of the provider, even the default one, as it might not implement the operations they want.
