SOAP DEFINITION (continued): … A SOAP fault is an error in a SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) communication resulting from incorrect message format, header-processing problems, or incompatibility between applications. When a SOAP fault occurs, a special message is generated that contains data indicating where the error originated and what caused it. This data is called a fault element. A message that includes a fault element is known as a fault message. A fault message can be generated by any node, and is transmitted to the first upstream node (the node immediately preceding it in the message path).SOAP allows computer programs to communicate over a network even if they use different operating platforms. It employs the World Wide Web's HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol)and XML (Extensible Markup Language) as the mechanisms for information exchange.
