S.Ananth, Thanks, good point, I checked, and the fault variable exists.
HDeiby, Thanks, this seems to be the only way to do it -- selecting the local copy as the basis of the catch. I am actually going over the Training materials for the Oracle University course, and those directions say to get the name from the namespace URI, then "partnerlink", "webservice name", then "imported WSDL"
We are facing similar issue and trying to resolve the Oracle advices not to Copy the WSDL files locally , and writes a note " Keeping a copy of WSDL may result in synchronization issues " in Jdeveloper when you try to create a reference .
We found out a way to access the Fault by adding PartnerLink to the WSDL ( I know that it is not a best practice to mix interface and implementation ) . This avoids the synchronization issues .
Do you have any other Thoughts .
