Subject Fix for "Element must contain a:'faultcode' element" problem
Date Thu, 13 Jun 2002 15:20:18 GMT
I've seen numerous posts about this on the list. The FAQ at http://xml.apache.org/soap/faq/faq_chawke.html#Q1_1
says that it's Xerces problem, but after I tried many different parsers/versions none of them
seem to help. So I traced the problem and yes, it has nothing to do with the parser I was

To fix the problem in version 2.3.1 open org.apache.soap.Fault.java, go to line 316 and add
these lines:

if( null != namespaceURI && namespaceURI.length() == 0 ) {
    namespaceURI = null;

They go right before the line
if (namespaceURI == null || namespaceURI.equals(Constants.NS_URI_SOAP_ENV)) {
which is the problem as it checks namespaceURI for null, but not for empty string.

After this I tried different versions of Xerces, Crimson and Weblogic's parser and they all
worked fine.
