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:
|<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
The faultcode values defined below must be used in the faultcode element when describing faults:
|VersionMismatch||Found an invalid namespace for the SOAP Envelope element|
|MustUnderstand||An immediate child element of the Header element, with the mustUnderstand attribute set to “1”, was not understood|
|Client||The message was incorrectly formed or contained incorrect information|
|Server||There was a problem with the server so the message could not proceed|
