is_soap_faultChecks if a SOAP call has failed


bool is_soap_fault ( mixed $object )

This function is useful to check if the SOAP call failed, but without using exceptions. To use it, create a SoapClient object with the exceptions option set to zero or FALSE. In this case, the SOAP method will return a special SoapFault object which encapsulates the fault details (faultcode, faultstring, faultactor and faultdetails).

If exceptions is not set then SOAP call will throw an exception on error. is_soap_fault() checks if the given parameter is a SoapFault object.



The object to test.

Return Values

This will return TRUE on error, and FALSE otherwise.


Example #1 is_soap_fault() example

= new SoapClient("some.wsdl", array('exceptions' => 0));
$result $client->SomeFunction();
if (
is_soap_fault($result)) {
trigger_error("SOAP Fault: (faultcode: {$result->faultcode}, faultstring: {$result->faultstring})"E_USER_ERROR);

Example #2 SOAP's standard method for error reporting is exceptions

try {
$client = new SoapClient("some.wsdl");
$result $client->SomeFunction(/* ... */);
} catch (
SoapFault $fault) {
trigger_error("SOAP Fault: (faultcode: {$fault->faultcode}, faultstring: {$fault->faultstring})"E_USER_ERROR);
