Interface SOAPBody

All Superinterfaces:
Element, Node, SOAPElement

public interface SOAPBody
extends SOAPElement

An object that represents the contents of the SOAP body element in a SOAP message. A SOAP body element consists of XML data that affects the way the application-specific content is processed.

A SOAPBody object contains SOAPBodyElement objects, which have the content for the SOAP body. A SOAPFault object, which carries status and/or error information, is an example of a SOAPBodyElement object.

Method Detail

addFault

SOAPFault addFault()
                   throws SOAPException
Creates a new SOAPFault object and adds it to this SOAPBody object. The new SOAPFault will have default values set for the mandatory child elements. The type of the SOAPFault will be a SOAP 1.1 or a SOAP 1.2 SOAPFault depending on the protocol specified while creating the MessageFactory instance.

A SOAPBody may contain at most one SOAPFault child element.

Returns:
the new SOAPFault object
Throws:
SOAPException - if there is a SOAP error

addFault

SOAPFault addFault(Name faultCode,
                   String faultString,
                   Locale locale)
                   throws SOAPException
Creates a new SOAPFault object and adds it to this SOAPBody object. The type of the SOAPFault will be a SOAP 1.1 or a SOAP 1.2 SOAPFault depending on the protocol specified while creating the MessageFactory instance.

For SOAP 1.2 the faultCode parameter is the value of the Fault/Code/Value element and the faultString parameter is the value of the Fault/Reason/Text element. For SOAP 1.1 the faultCode parameter is the value of the faultcode element and the faultString parameter is the value of the faultstring element.

A SOAPBody may contain at most one SOAPFault child element.

Parameters:
faultCode - a Name object giving the fault code to be set; must be one of the fault codes defined in the Version of SOAP specification in use
faultString - a String giving an explanation of the fault
locale - a Locale object indicating the native language of the faultString
Returns:
the new SOAPFault object
Throws:
SOAPException - if there is a SOAP error
Since:
SAAJ 1.2

SOAPFault.setFaultCode(javax.xml.soap.Name), SOAPFault.setFaultString(java.lang.String)

addFault

SOAPFault addFault(QName faultCode,
                   String faultString,
                   Locale locale)
                   throws SOAPException
Creates a new SOAPFault object and adds it to this SOAPBody object. The type of the SOAPFault will be a SOAP 1.1 or a SOAP 1.2 SOAPFault depending on the protocol specified while creating the MessageFactory instance.

For SOAP 1.2 the faultCode parameter is the value of the Fault/Code/Value element and the faultString parameter is the value of the Fault/Reason/Text element. For SOAP 1.1 the faultCode parameter is the value of the faultcode element and the faultString parameter is the value of the faultstring element.

A SOAPBody may contain at most one SOAPFault child element.

Parameters:
faultCode - a QName object giving the fault code to be set; must be one of the fault codes defined in the version of SOAP specification in use.
faultString - a String giving an explanation of the fault
locale - a Locale object indicating the native language of the faultString
Returns:
the new SOAPFault object
Throws:
SOAPException - if there is a SOAP error
Since:
SAAJ 1.3

SOAPFault.setFaultCode(javax.xml.soap.Name), SOAPFault.setFaultString(java.lang.String), addFault(Name faultCode, String faultString, Locale locale)

addFault

SOAPFault addFault(Name faultCode,
                   String faultString)
                   throws SOAPException
Creates a new SOAPFault object and adds it to this SOAPBody object. The type of the SOAPFault will be a SOAP 1.1 or a SOAP 1.2 SOAPFault depending on the protocol specified while creating the MessageFactory instance.

For SOAP 1.2 the faultCode parameter is the value of the Fault/Code/Value element and the faultString parameter is the value of the Fault/Reason/Text element. For SOAP 1.1 the faultCode parameter is the value of the faultcode element and the faultString parameter is the value of the faultstring element.

In case of a SOAP 1.2 fault, the default value for the mandatory xml:lang attribute on the Fault/Reason/Text element will be set to java.util.Locale.getDefault()

A SOAPBody may contain at most one SOAPFault child element.

Parameters:
faultCode - a Name object giving the fault code to be set; must be one of the fault codes defined in the version of SOAP specification in use
faultString - a String giving an explanation of the fault
Returns:
the new SOAPFault object
Throws:
SOAPException - if there is a SOAP error
Since:
SAAJ 1.2

SOAPFault.setFaultCode(javax.xml.soap.Name), SOAPFault.setFaultString(java.lang.String)

addFault

SOAPFault addFault(QName faultCode,
                   String faultString)
                   throws SOAPException
Creates a new SOAPFault object and adds it to this SOAPBody object. The type of the SOAPFault will be a SOAP 1.1 or a SOAP 1.2 SOAPFault depending on the protocol specified while creating the MessageFactory instance.

For SOAP 1.2 the faultCode parameter is the value of the Fault/Code/Value element and the faultString parameter is the value of the Fault/Reason/Text element. For SOAP 1.1 the faultCode parameter is the value of the faultcode element and the faultString parameter is the value of the faultstring element.

In case of a SOAP 1.2 fault, the default value for the mandatory xml:lang attribute on the Fault/Reason/Text element will be set to java.util.Locale.getDefault()

A SOAPBody may contain at most one SOAPFault child element

Parameters:

hasFault

boolean hasFault()
Indicates whether a SOAPFault object exists in this SOAPBody object.

Returns:
true if a SOAPFault object exists in this SOAPBody object; false otherwise

getFault

SOAPFault getFault()
Returns the SOAPFault object in this SOAPBody object.

Returns:

addDocument

SOAPBodyElement addDocument(Document document)
                            throws SOAPException
Adds the root node of the DOM Document to this SOAPBody object.

Calling this method invalidates the document parameter. The client application should discard all references to this Document and its contents upon calling addDocument. The behavior of an application that continues to use such references is undefined.

Parameters:
document - the Document object whose root node will be added to this SOAPBody.
Returns:
the SOAPBodyElement that represents the root node that was added.
Throws:
SOAPException - if the Document cannot be added
