Re: formsplayer debug suggestions
- I've used a program called SOAPScope to intercept the traffic between
webservices. It can present the soap envelope in a number of different
ways, and is very useful to spot mistakes in the message.
- Hi Andy,
I've not looked at that one, but thanks for the reference. We've found
Microsoft's Fiddler to be useful when testing applications. It will show you
images as well, which is pretty handy when doing mapping forms!
And it's free.

Ethereal isn't the end all of tools, but sniffing the wire can reveal other things about your
what's coming from the client as well. Just my opinion though.
Start your day with Yahoo! - make it your home page
- I've found Ethereal quite handy for network issues. However, I've
found that I can't get local service calls to go via the external
network, which means Ethereal fails to catch them. For these purposes,
I found proxy-based tool to be more helpful.
