If you are debugging a Web Service, on the General tab and in the Debugging type section, on the Web Service tab enter the
IP address of the client that makes the service request.
Alternatively, enter the fully qualified name of the service. This is formed by taking the name of the service and appending
a pound or hash character (#) followed by the name of the operation that you want to debug. For example, if the service name
for the web service that you deployed is
http://tempuri.org/wmapserv, and the operation to debug is
Read, the fully qualified service name is:
To prevent the debugger from being suspended for all transactions except breakpoints, optionally check

Debug Options on the
Start the Web service or the application you want to debug on the enterprise server region. The way you do this depends on
the type of application, for example:
For a Web Service, run the client program and enter some input to trigger the service. It is not possible to run the client
module from within your debug session. However, if the client program is also part of a different project than the one that
you are debugging, you can start another debug session, open the client project and run the client module.
Step through the application in the usual manner.
When the debugger reaches the
exit program statement and no line is highlighted, the service or the application exits. The debugger now waits for the next matching
service or application to start.
When you have finished debugging, click
Run > Terminate.
If specified in your Enterprise Server preferences, when closing the project it will stop and delete the enterprise server
used to debug the application.
