The right combination of options to trace configurator servlet..
By gaurav.verma on Jun 01, 2008
A long while back, we had faced a weird situation with configurator and desperately needed to trace it to find out what was happening behind the scenes.
After consulting many a metalink notes, however hard I tried, the tracing would simply not happen. The right sequence of character and options is quite tricky and not very well documented. (Not surprising, as Configurator is an acquired product)
After many attempts, the tracing did work and this article is more as a reminder to myself and any other people out there who want to trace the confiurator servlet. Be reminded though, that this tracing is more like FRD log tracing (for Oracle Forms) and is NOT sql tracing.
Having said so, here are the magical options that you need to add to $IAS_ORACLE_HOME/Apache/Jserv/etc/zone.properties file:
where, $TRACEDIR is the directory where the trace (.lce) file will be produced. Also, please note that the /gt= option was just wrapped around to the below line for reading purposes. In reality, it needs to be in the same line as the /tl= option.
If anyone of you reading this article has a better idea than this, please let me know through the comment mechanism.
