Hi guys!

Is my assumption correct that if i define a fault message in the portType.operation node, in the case of that fault, the fault.detail element will hold a node with the local name of the porType.operation.fault.name value?

If so - what happens if the porType.operation.fault.name is not given (that attribute is optional)?

Many thanks in advance!

Take care, Alex

Hi!
Your assumption is not correct.
In an attempt to clarify, I'll give an example:
In the <wsdl:types> element in the WSDL of a web service, there is an element declaration:

In the WSDL, there is the following <wsdl:message>, <wsdl:portType> and <wsdl:binding> definitions:

Note that the <wsdl:fault> in the <wsdl:binding> element uses the name element to refer to the corresponding <wsdl:fault> element in the <wsdl:portType> element.

If the web service in question generates a fault, the SOAP message returned will look like this:


Note how the <detail> element contains the <addValuesFault> element, as defined in the <wsdl:types> section. The <addValuesFault> element, in turn, contains the three child elements <errorMsg>, <value1> and <value2> - again according to the definition of the <addValuesFault> element.
As far as I can tell, there is nothing specifying how to use the name attribute you ask about in the SOAP 1.1 or WSDL 1.1 specifications.
