I have:
- Delphi 7 Enterprise
- Windows 2000 prof.
- Datasnap application server and client on the same machine
- Borland Socket server

How can I debug the functions that exists in the application server?

when I run the application server from Delphi IDE, and I run clients executables, the clients open a new instance of the application server, and no one use my applicaiton server that ready to be debuged in Delpih IDE :(

Hello Motaz

  First Create Project group that contian the Server App and client, then from project menu choose "compile all projects"

Second, go project manager, make the server app as default place your break point there, then choose run

back to project manager again, and make the client app the default, run it, and when you call any method on the server, it should be stopped where you placed the break points

HTH

   Okay, here is the routine :

   Open Delphi and there - the server. Build / Register. Then in Run/Parameters for Host application put C:\WinNT\system32\dllhost.exe (C:\Windows for XP users). Make sure you have debug info. Put the break points and run it.

   Run the client application and when you come the break line it should stop.
