Checks if SOAP call was failed (PHP 5)
bool is_soap_fault ( mixed obj )

This function is useful when you like to check if the SOAP call failed, but don't like to use exceptions. To use it you must 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 tested object.

Return Values

Returns TRUE on success or FALSE on failure.


Example 2269. 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 2270. 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);
