 * Controller that is called whenever a technical error occurs while processing a
 * request. A standard error page is rendered.
 * @module controllers/Error

/* Script Modules */
var app = require('~/cartridge/scripts/app');
var guard = require('~/cartridge/scripts/guard');

 * Called by the system when an error is not handled locally. Renders a general error
 * page.
 * Determines if it is an AJAX request by looking at
 * X-Requested-With=XMLHttpRequest request header. This header is set by
 * jQuery for every AJAX request. If the requested response format is not set to json
 * then the decorator is empty. If it is set to json, a JSON response is sent.
 * @param {Object} args The argument object
 * @param {String} args.ErrorText The error message.
 * @param {String} args.ControllerName The controller that caused the error.
 * @param {String} args.CurrentStartNodeName The endpoint name causing the error.
