Title: Message logging and tracing - WCF - Lesson 11
Duration: 24 minutes
In this video, we need to discuss message logging and tracing. We start with
the MathService that we created previously. In this service we created two
simple methods for Multiplying and Moding two numbers. We created a console
host to host the service, and a client to call the methods in the service. In
order to turn message tracing and logging we use the App.config on the service
side and the client side. We can edit the config file by hand, but it is easier
to use the configuration editor. In the configuration editor, we use the
diagnostics section. We turn message logging and tracing on and specify the log
levels and the log files (with extension .svclog). We run the client and make
some calls to the service. After we exit out, we show all files in the
solution. Couple of those files (on the client and the service) have .svclog
extension. We open those files using the trace viewer. The tool name is
SvcTraceViewer.exe. When we open the files using the tool, we are able to see
all the messages that were exchanged between the client and the service.
of the development of example: Good coding standard and
simplified design to illustrate the key points.
