    Exceptions thrown from an EJB exposed as a JAX-WS web
    service are not correctly propagated back to the JAX-WS client.
    
    In this case, the EJB creates a SOAPFaultException
    with a Detail element.  When the exception is received by the
    client, the Detail element is missing.
    

Problem conclusion

  • SOAPFaultExceptions thrown from an EJB get wrapped as a
    java.rmi.RemoteException.  The JAX-WS web service engine was
    not unwrapping the RemoteException.  The engine has
    been corrected so that it will extract the SOAPFaultException
    from the RemoteException and pass it on to the client.
    
    The fix for this APAR is currently targeted for inclusion in
    fix pack 7.0.0.17.  Please refer to the Recommended Updates
