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