9.15.3. Fault Handling

An implementation may throw a SOAPFaultException

public void throwSoapFaultException()
SOAPFactory factory = SOAPFactory.newInstance();
SOAPFault fault = factory.createFault("this is a fault string!", new QName("http://foo", "FooCode"));
throw new SOAPFaultException(fault);

or an application specific user exception

public void throwApplicationException() throws UserException
throw new UserException("validation", 123, "Some validation error");


In case of the latter JBossWS generates the required fault wrapper beans at runtime if they are not part of the deployment
