Simon Guest announced a new WSE 2.0 tracing tool that looks pretty slick, and supports tracing both HTTP and TCP.
Whenever I have given presentations on web services, people want to know about the tools that are available for tracing. Here’s a short list. Anyone have links to more? Note that these are free unless otherwise noted.
- Eric Lawrence’s Fiddler (HTTP debugging proxy)
- Simon Guest’s WseTrace (for tracing WSE 2.0 HTTP and TCP channels)
- Mike Taulty’s WSE 2.0 Trace (for tracing WSE 2.0 messages via filters)
- Simon Fell’s TcpTrace (for tracing TCP traffic on a specified port)
- Simon Fell’s proxyTrace (for tracing HTTP and SOAP specific traffic)
- Simon Fell’s YATT (Yet Another Trace Tool… trace without changing the port for the proxy, works across machines)
- Blunck’s ieHTTPHeaders (view HTTP header information in an IE explorer bar)
- AmberPoint’s Express (tracing and perf monitoring… currently available and will ship with Visual Studio 2005 as well)
- MindReef’s SOAPscope (comprehensive tool for services development, includes tracing, WS-I compliance, and WSDL checking… $99.)
