SOAP Communications Process

Once the proxy server (SOAP debugger) has been started, the SOAP communication process is as follows:

 

Proxy server listens continually to a socket/port for incoming client requests

 

Client application sends a request to proxy server
Client requests can be modified if/when breakpoints have been triggered
Proxy server request data is forwarded to the web service server

 

The webservice server responds to the proxy request, and sends the response data back to the proxy server

 

Server responses can be modified if/when breakpoints have been triggered
Proxy server response data is forwarded to the client application
Client application receives response data from proxy server

 

Port settings

The SOAP debugger uses the 8080 port to monitor clients' requests. The port can only be altered when a new SOAP debugging session is started. If this port is disabled by personal firewalls, you will need to either disable these programs or select a different port address.
