CommunicationObjectFaultedException Class

The exception that is thrown when a call is made to a communication object that has faulted.

Namespace:  System.ServiceModel
Assembly:  System.ServiceModel (in System.ServiceModel.dll)

public class CommunicationObjectFaultedException extends CommunicationException

A CommunicationObjectFaultedException is thrown when a call is made to a faulted communication object. CommunicationObjectFaultedException is a derived class of System.ServiceModel.CommunicationException and can occur in correct applications. Because typically the code that calls the ICommunicationObject.Abort method reports the error condition that caused the call to ICommunicationObject.Abort, this exception indicates that the call failed but the most useful error information is elsewhere.


If an object is faulted with several pending calls, only one call throws a specific exception; the others throw CommunicationObjectFaultedException.
