SOAP Fault Element

The SOAP Fault Element

An error message from a SOAP message is carried inside a Fault element.

If a Fault element is present, it must appear as a child element of the Body element. A Fault element can only appear once in a SOAP message.

The SOAP Fault element has the following sub elements:

Sub Element Description
<faultcode> A code for identifying the fault
<faultstring> A human readable explanation of the fault
<faultactor> Information about who caused the fault to happen

Holds application specific error information related to the Body element

SOAP Fault Codes
