I am using the WSDL first approach for web services development using Apache CXF.
A number of element is the xml schema are mandatory and I have implemented validation using the handler.xml.
The issue I face is I am not able to get which field in the payload is causing the validation error
I get a message something like
<faultstring>cvc-datatype-valid.1.2.1: 'q' is not a valid value for 'integer'.</faultstring>
Let me know your thoughts on how can I go about trapping the exact xml element names in the error message as part of the validation.

Can someone provide any pointers on how this can be achieved.
I searched a lot but did not seem to be find any helpful example.

First I would use soapUI to test the web service - if it can issue requests and receive responses then the problem is most likely with the client.
If you need to examine requests and responses to/from the web service, then you can use WireShark or some TCP monitoring tool.
A third alternative is to implement a SOAP message logging handler on the web service side. Such a handler can log incoming and outgoing SOAP messages and thus let you discover where the problem is.
