If you are going to merge a lot of the the content from vospace 1.0
specification, then it might be good to look at the wording for the
When I was doing the notes for the vospace1.1 specification I noticed
that all the method descriptions have a 'Faults' section, and in both
the appendix and the service WSDL they are referred to as 'faults', but
in the in the document text we say :
".... the service should throw an XyxException"
".... the service should throw an XyxFault"
I left it as it was because we did the same in the vospace 1.0
specification, and I wanted to keep the style and wording consistent
because we were referring back to the original document. However, if we
are going to make the vospace 1.1. document stand alone, then it might
be good to fix this.
I think it is probably just a search for 'exception' and replace with
'fault' where appropriate.
Hope this helps,
