javax.xml.ws.soap.SOAPFaultException: Fault occurred while processing.

Last week, completely out of the blue I got faced with the following Soap exception:

I didn’t matter whether I ran my calls through Soap-UI or through the application, I would always face this error. No clear solutions were available on the internet, except for a bunch of things you could try.

Eventually I started debugging my code again but instead of stopping once my webservice method returned, I kept going deeper, passing through a lot of unknown (decompiled) code untill I finally hit on a caught exception. It turned out that a newly added advice would convert the result to a JSON message for audit logging and this particular conversion would result in a StackOverflowException when the result contained binary data (through a javax.activation.DataHandler object).

So if you happen to have this error, you might also want to check out your aspects 😉
