SOAP fault carried over HTTP 200 or HTTP 500 ?

P: n/a
Hi,

Some of my webservice peers return SOAP faults using a
"HTTP 200 OK" reply and others use a
"HTTP 500 Internal Server Error" instead. I was wondering
if there is some kind of standard for SOAP over HTTP
(or, more specifically where I can find such a beast)
that regulates these things?

And, which one is correct? Using HTTP 200 OK or
HTTP 500 Internal Server Error?
regards,
martin

HI

According to WS-I BP 1.1 (www.ws-i.org), indicating a SOAP fault using the
response code 500 Internal Server error is not mandatory. It recommends the
checking of the SOAP:Fault tag to determine whehter it is a SOAP:Fault or not.
