In this great post Eugene Osovetsky answers the following questions:
- Why are exceptions not “propagated” from WCF services to Silverlight clients?
- Why are SOAP Faults not supported?

- I can’t even get basic error handling to work when calling web services in Silverlight. Can I at least tell when something went wrong, even if I can’t access the exact fault details?
I’ve just updated the sample about Duplex Services and SLB2: the modified Web.config now permits to expose composite types to the client.
