Description From 2006-07-14 11:24:14
ip-156:~/pkgs/globus-4.0.2 bacon$ bin/wsrf-query -s Foobar

This is the same result as if there were no results returned:
ip-156:~/pkgs/globus-4.0.2 bacon$ bin/wsrf-query -s '/Foobar'

I would suggest that the first should generate some kind of "Invalid XPath
expression: Foobar" error, and the second should return something like "No
results found for XPath expression '/Foobar'".

We saw the "null" result in a tutorial today, and it didn't help the student
understand what had gone wrong.

Both expressions are valid. I will, however, update the client to display a
nice error message if no results were returned.

Committed a fix to trunk to display a nice error msg when no results are

$ wsrf-query.bat -s foo
Query did not return any results.

Committed that fix to globus_4_0_branch too.
