I'm designing a web service interface (WSDL 1.1 / SOAP 1.1) that will include operations that I'd like to model similar to void returning methods in Java like this:

void doFoo(...) throws MyContingencyException;

That is, while there's no return value, i'd like to be able to deliver service specific faults to the consumer.

Apparently, you can't return faults with one-way MEPs, so it would need to be request-response MEP.

What kinds of patterns are you using for modeling these kinds of operations in WSDL?

Do you just define a simple status code value (xsd:byte, xsd:boolean or xsd:string)?
Or define a custom "VoidType" complexType with no content?

Any other approaches?
