Trapping a SOAP Fault on the Web Service Client

Web Service client code must be prepared to handle SOAP faults returned by Web Service producers. Caché Web Service clients can use standard Caché error trapping techniques.

Add the following method to your ContactApplication.SOAPServiceSoap. The method uses Caché error trapping to handle any SOAP faults returned by the SOAPTutorial.SOAPService GetContact method.

ClassMethod Demo(id As %Integer)
  set service = ##class(ContactApplication.SOAPServiceSoap).%New()
  set person = service.GetContact(id)
  write person.Name
 Catch ex {
  if service.SoapFault '=""{
    write service.SoapFault.AsString()
    do $System.Status.DisplayError(ex.AsStatus())
 quit 1
