(Doc ID 1221963.1)
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 25, 2020
Applies to:Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 8.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.
On developing a Webservice that is being called from a specific client which excepts faults to be available in WSDL message definition, you will get a 'javax.xml.rpc.soap.SOAPFaultException'. The exception is not by default added in the web-services.xml when package is build using an ant job, from servicegen tool of WebLogic.
If you try to include the fault tag manually as mentioned in "Creating the web-services.xml File Manually" the application fails to get deployed complaining that the specific 'type' is not available.
