How Do I Use the XPath Connection Debugger?

The XPath Connection Debugger can be used to construct and debug connection strings for XMLdata sources. 

With the XPath Connection Debugger you can:

  • Change and test connection strings and display the stack traces of failed tests
  • Enter an Authentication Protocol 
  • Build connection strings by selecting connection string parameters

Open the XPath Connection Debugger

  1. After entering the details for a data source connection into the Connection Editor, click on "Test"
  2. If the test fails, a message will appear at the bottom of the Connection Editor
  3. A failed test causes the "Debugger" button to appear - click on "Debugger"

XPath Connection Debugger Interface

The Exceptions Pane

The Exceptions Pane shows the stack trace of any exception that occurred while testing the data source connection, or while changing the connection string within the debugger.

The Connection Pane

The Connection Pane is comprised of XML file path, Authentication Protocol, Schema, and Properties that can be set in order to specify parameters.
