Errors

Savon::Error

The base class for all other Savon errors. This allows you to either rescue a specific error like Savon::SOAPFault or rescue Savon::Error to catch them all.

Savon::SOAPFault

Raised when the server returns a SOAP fault error. The error object contains the HTTPI response for you to further investigate what went wrong.

def authenticate(credentials)
  client.call(:authenticate, message: credentials)
rescue Savon::SOAPFault => error
  Logger.log error.http.code
  raise
end

The example above rescues from SOAP faults, logs the HTTP response code and re-raises the SOAP fault. You can also translate the SOAP fault response into a Hash.

def authenticate(credentials)
  client.call(:authenticate, message: credentials)
rescue Savon::SOAPFault => error
  fault_code = error.to_hash[:fault][:faultcode]
  raise CustomError, fault_code
end

Savon::HTTPError

Raised when Savon considers the HTTP response to be not successful. You can rescue this error and access the HTTPI response for investigation.

def authenticate(credentials)
  client.call(:authenticate, message: credentials)
rescue Savon::HTTPError => error
  Logger.log error.http.code
  raise
end

The example rescues from HTTP errors, logs the HTTP response code and re-raises the error.

Savon::InvalidResponseError

Raised when you try to access the response header or body of a response that is not a SOAP response as a Hash. If the response is not an XML document with an envelope, a header and a body node, it's not accessible as a Hash.

def get_id_from_response(response)
  response.body[:return][:id]
rescue Savon::InvalidResponseError
  Logger.log "Invalid server response"
  raise
end
