(Doc ID 1351698.1)

Oracle(R) BPEL Process Manager 10g - Version and later

When a catch block in used in BPEL component, it catches the errors and forwards the fault message to caller.
There may be difficulties when attempting to map the "detail" element in SOAP Fault
because the error is populated in "faultstring" element instead of "detail" element as shown below:

<env:Envelope xmlns:env="">
              faultName: {{}remoteFault}
              messageType: {{}FaultMessage}
              parts: {{
                    payload=<processResponse xmlns="">
