public class SOAPFaultException
extends ProtocolException

The SOAPFaultException exception represents a SOAP 1.1 or 1.2 fault.

A SOAPFaultException wraps a SAAJ SOAPFault that manages the SOAP-specific representation of faults. The createFault method of javax.xml.soap.SOAPFactory may be used to create an instance of javax.xml.soap.SOAPFault for use with the constructor. SOAPBinding contains an accessor for the SOAPFactory used by the binding instance.

Note that the value of getFault is the only part of the exception used when searializing a SOAP fault.

Refer to the SOAP specification for a complete description of SOAP faults.
