You don't need use the javascript source files. You only need include hprose-html5.js in your html.

Exception Handling

If an error occurred on the server, or your service function/method throw an exception, it will be sent to the client. You need to pass an error callback function after succuss callback function to receive it. If you omit this callback function, the client will ignore the exception, like never happened.

For example:

<script type="text/javascript" src="hprose-html5.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
    var client = new hprose.HttpClient("", ["hello"]);
    client.hello("World!", function(result) {
    }, function(name, err) {
