I am a bit confused about the best why to handle exceptions (RPC style) and would like your help.
For example, if my w_service was returning an array of Value Objects to a client, but the w_service side threw an exception, should I try/catch the exception and simply return an empty list to the client? or is it best to generate a SOAP exception of some sort to let the client know a problem occurred.
Is this possible via JAX-RPC (stubs) or do I need to use a lower level api like SAAJ?
Is it reasonable to detail in the WSDL that in order to use a particular w_service successfully, a client should check a getErrorFlag return value and if false to handle there own processing accordingly?
I have made a search for this in the forum but without success.
