Specify soap:Fault faultstring in Fuse Service Works

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • We have a SwitchYard project with a SOAP-binding and generated Java interface and parameter and result types from the wsdl.
  • When the bean throws a RuntimeException, how can we control what the faultstring will be in the returned soap-fault?
  • Now we get the included fault. But we want the faultstring to be <faultstring>This should be the only error text returned!</faultstring>.
<soap:Envelope xmlns:soap="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/">
   <SOAP-ENV:Header xmlns:SOAP-ENV="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/envelope/"></SOAP>
         <faultstring>org.switchyard.HandlerException: java.lang.RuntimeException: This should be the only error text returned!</faultstring>
