Subject [jira] Created: (AXIS2-2850) "In" MessageContext.envelope is overwritten by "Fault" MessageContext.envelope on Exception
Date Mon, 25 Jun 2007 12:27:26 GMT
"In" MessageContext.envelope is overwritten by "Fault" MessageContext.envelope on Exception

                 Key: AXIS2-2850
             Project: Axis 2.0 (Axis2)
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: kernel
    Affects Versions: 1.2
         Environment: Axis2 1.2, Tomcat 5.5.
            Reporter: Kevin
            Priority: Blocker

To reproduce:
- Use wsdl2java to create a web service
- create a custom handler extending AbstractHandler
- Add a <phase> entry in the axis.xml to execute the handler PostDispatch
- In the web service skeleton class, implement the service by throwing the declared exception.
 The exception should cause the  fault message defined in the wsdl to be returned in the SOAP
- run a test on the web service
- When the custom handler is invoked, attempt to retrieve the "In" soap envelope using
- the "In" envelope is the "Fault" envelope, but it should be the original incoming soap message

Note that if the exception is not thrown in the skeleton class, the "In" envelope is the correct

As far as I can see, the offending code is: AxisServlet.handleFault() line 368:

366 : 	saminda 	509437 	 MessageContext faultContext =
367 : 	  	  	MessageContextBuilder.createFaultMessageContext(msgContext, e);
368 : 	saminda 	509952 	msgContext.setEnvelope(faultContext.getEnvelope());

This seems to be a bug for me. Can you please create a JIRA giving
enough information to re-create this problem. Also please mark the issue
as a blocker as I think this should be fixed before the next release.
