Build Issue : WSDL messageType "{}remoteFault" of variable "" is not defined in any of the WSDL files

When you select a system fault like remotefault in a catch activity/fault handler, JDeveloper copies a wsdl named RuntimeFault.wsdl  from your
<JDEVELOPER_HOME%\\integration\seed\soa\shared\bpel directory to your project and this wsdl contains following msg :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<definitions name="RuntimeFault"

    <message name="RuntimeFaultMessage">
        <part name="code" type="xsd:string"/>
        <part name="summary" type="xsd:string"/>
        <part name="detail" type="xsd:string"/>

And secondly, JDeveloper create the faultVariable in your BPEL file (.bepl) like this :

<variable messageType="bpelx:remoteFault" name="FaultVar"/>

Now if you observe, the RuntimeFault.wsdl is having the message name as "RuntimeFaultMessage" where as
the variable's messageType is messageType="bpelx:remoteFault".

Change all those instances to RuntimeFaultMessage, and add an import to map the wsdl in the composite.xml

  <import namespace="" location="RuntimeFault.wsdl"


  1. change the instances means where we need to change

  2. What I meant was to change remoteFault to RemoteFaultMessage in files where it is being used
