    WebFault are always marked as UNCHECKED_APPLICATION_FAULT

    Guillaume Gingras Newbie

      My web service (JBoss-as-7.1.2, jbossws 4.0.2.GA) throws exceptions that are correctly annoted and the result is ok. Except that every time an exception is thrown, there is one stacktrace printed to the console that should not be there since it is a deplared exception of my web service.


      6:17:57,445 WARNING [org.apache.cxf.phase.PhaseInterceptorChain] (http-/ Application {http://www.abc.com/xml}WebService#{http://www.abc.com/xml}doSomething has thrown exception, unwinding now: org.apache.cxf.interceptor.Fault: abc

      Instead of

      The problem seems to come from JBossWSInvoker which expects web faults to be wrapped within a InvocationTargetException which is not the case.


               invHandler.invoke(ep, inv);
               retObj = inv.getReturnValue();
            } catch (InvocationTargetException e) {
               Throwable t = e.getCause();
               if (t == null) {
                  t = e;
               exchange.getInMessage().put(FaultMode.class, FaultMode.UNCHECKED_APPLICATION_FAULT);
               for (Class<?> cl : m.getExceptionTypes()) {
                  if (cl.isInstance(t)) {
               if (t instanceof Fault) {
                  throw (Fault)t;
               throw createFault(t, m, paramList, true);
            } catch (Fault f) {
               exchange.getInMessage().put(FaultMode.class, FaultMode.UNCHECKED_APPLICATION_FAULT);
               throw f;
            } catch (Exception e) {
               exchange.getInMessage().put(FaultMode.class, FaultMode.UNCHECKED_APPLICATION_FAULT);
               throw createFault(e, m, paramList, false);


      The solutions, is either make my exception extend InvocationTargetException or wrap my fault in InvocationTargetException. I don't like any of the solution.


      Is there any other way?
