Axis2 problem

I have generated a client for a web service with Axis 2.

The problem I have is that when the web service throws a Soap:Fault message I don't seem to have any way to get to the actual error it returns.
Axis2 throws a RemoteException, but I can't see a way to drill into that to get the text of the error (which I can see because I'm logging all i/o).

How do I get the faultString?

I assume you're running this in a servlet container of some kind - isn't there a full stack trace in its log files?

I'm not sure what you're suggesting here.

My code calls the client. The client throws an exception. I catch the exception, but it does not include the useful error text I want to handle.
How would a logged stack dump help with that?
I agree. Here's the link:
