20.1. Message Tracing

Message tracing provides a view of the content and context of a message exchange on the SwitchYard bus. Message tracing prints exchange information to the log. An exchange interceptor that generates the trace, is triggered at the following points:
  • Immediately after the consumer sends the request message. For example, In the case of a service which is invoked from a service binding, this is the point at which the gateway binding puts the message onto the bus.
  • Immediately before the service provider is invoked.
  • Immediately after the service provider is invoked.
  • At completion of the exchange before the message is returned to the consumer.

20.1.1. Trace Output Example

Trace output includes details on the metadata, context properties, payload, and attachments for a message exchange. Here is an example of a trace entry:

20.1.2. Enabling Message Tracing

You can enable message tracing within JBoss Developer Studio.
  • When using the SwitchYard visual editor to view the switchyard.xml file, select the Domain tab to view the Domain Settings, then select the Enable Message Trace check box.
This sets the value of the org.switchyard.handlers.messageTrace.enabled property to true in your application domain. This is captured by the <sy:domain> element in the switchyard.xml source file.
