Atelier - Debugging - Attach to the process
I would like to share with you my experience regarding to debugging via Atelier.
I'm developing a REST API and would like to attach to a process when I call the API via a REST Client tool, for example Postman. The purpose is to inspect values from HEADER and BODY of the HTTP request during the debugging process.
Come on! How am I doing? I am going to demonstrate that by using a class from SAMPLES namespace.
1 - Open Atelier;
2 - Open your REST Service class;
3 - Go to the method related to the URI that you need to debug;
4 - Add a HANG (I suggest between 10 and 15 seconds) enough for you to be able to attach to the Caché / Ensemble process; See the image bellow:
5 - Change the view to the DEBUG view;
6 - Go to Run->Debug Configurations->Application Atelier Attach;
7 - Right click on "Application Atelier Attach" and click on New to configure your server process list;
8 - Configure you server Caché/Ensemble/Intersystems IRIS process list;
9 - Click on Apply;
10 - Switch to you REST client tool;
11 - When you call you REST Api it will HANGS the process durint the amount of seconds you have coded previouslly;
12 - At this time, you will need to switch back to Atelier;
13 - On Atelier, click on Run->Debug Configuration->Application Atelier Attach and select your server list process that you have setup;
14 -Click on Applyand close this window;
Alternatively you can use a small button as a shortcut:
At this pint you will be able to debug and inspect your code as needed.
Please, feel free to share you experience as well as add your comments.
