What is the difference between a fault and exception in Apache SOAP?..

Answer / supra

The difference lies in where the error occurs - on the
client side (during the generation of the soap request or
the unmarshalling the response) - or on the server side
(when unmarshalling the request, processing the message or
marshalling the response). The client side raises an
exception whereas the server side sends a SOAP response to
the client indicating an error occured on the server side
(ie. you get a SOAP fault).

For example, sending a SOAP encoded request for a
method that does not exist results in a SOAP fault whereas
if the server sends a response with a field that does not
exist in a client side class a SOAP exception will be
raised.
