Debugging SOAP web services with BusinessWorks 5.x

If you are having difficulties tracking down an issue with your SOAP/HTTP web services in your BusinessWorks 5.x project, it is possible to enable SOAP debugging. The following applies to SOAP Event Source process starters as well as to the Service resources.

  • Edit your BW application’s tra file (designer.tra or custom property file if you are using Designer).
  • Add the following properties:
java.property.com.tibco.plugin.soap.trace.inbound=true
java.property.com.tibco.plugin.soap.trace.outbound=true
java.property.com.tibco.plugin.soap.trace.filename=C:/tmp/soap.txt
java.property.com.tibco.plugin.soap.trace.pretty=true
java.property.com.tibco.plugin.soap.trace.stdout=true
  • It is also possible to increase the HTTP log level with the following property:
bw.plugin.http.server.debug=true
  • Save the file and restart the BW engine (close then restart Designer when using designer.tra, or simply restart the tester when using a custom property file loaded with the -p flag).
