Problem with Custom Exceptions in my Axis webservice

I have been trying to get a custom exception from my web service but haven't been able to do so in the client.
I am using IBM RAD to generate the webservice wsdl and using this WSDL to generate the test client.

On the server side I have the following
1. My Custom exception class

2. And am throwing this exception as follows

On the client Side
I am unable to retrieve this BSPCustomException class. It comes as an AxisFault.

The result of the above in the console is as follows

How can i get the custom exception in the test client. The BSPCustomException is coming in the faultString and also the getCause is null.
It should have been straight forward, Is there something i am missing ?

Hi Madhu,

I have not worked on Axis, but just curious to know, if you do not have the Custom exception class generated when you created the artifacts from WSDL. Have you tried using that exception on client side, instead of AxisFault.

Hi Madhup,

If you have your web service operation throwing business exception, then it would come as checked exception on the client. From you code, it seems like your business exception is not being thrown from web service interface's method. Can you post your WSDL to see how the interface is defined?

I agree. Here's the link:
