Symptoms

When using Webservices that use custom exceptions it was found that the webservice deploys successfully but while starting the service the below error is seen in the standard out of the server.
 <WS data binding error>com.xxx.iconfig.components.exception.OperationFailedException is not understood because there is no type mapping for exception class
<WS data binding error>While processing <exception-mapping> for wsdlMessageName='{com.xxx.iconfig}OperationFailedException', wsdlMessagePartElement='{com.xxx.iconfig.components.exception}string'. Unable to find a BindingType in the binding file for javaTypeName ='com.xxx.iconfig.components.exception.OperationFailedException', xmlTypeName='e=string@com.xxx.iconfig.components.exception'. The cause of this error is likely because an <exception-mapping> specified for {com.xxx.iconfig}OperationFailedExceptionrequires that a <java-xml-type-mapping> exist for java

Changes

None.
