Logs:

  • Java Composer Projects Server Side Backend logging can be controlled using the log4j.xml file present in the $ComposerInstalledLocation\tomcat\lib folder.
  • For DotNetComposer Projects web.config file can be used to control the Server Side logging.
  • Java Composer Projects exported as WAR files will have the log4j.xml bundled inside the WEB-INF\lib folder. If the log4j.xml configuration format is not working, you can add a log4j.properties in the tomcat/webapps/<application name>/WEB-INF/classes folder.

Notes:

  • Service URL has to end with wsdl or WSDL
  • Cannot use - or other reserved characters in the Entry block for a variable value. Enter the value directly in the input parameters dialog by typing the value in the Expression column as a string; example: 'atm near 37.771008, -122.41175'
