Simon White Break Points Never Executed Problem
on Fri, 12 Mar 2010 12:19:40 -0500
Hi

I have been trying to build a Windows Service using XB2Net and I have 
this strange situation where the break point never gets called.  I have 
even added a FilterRequest code block so I could see the request before 
it is processed but it also never fires.  However the status screen 
shows that the number of hits increases.  There are no error logs 
created nor error messages displayed.  So I wondered if anyone might 
have a suggestion.

The obvious point is that the code just never gets called but I can find 
no reason for this.  I have been able to see the code get called in the 
past but I seem to have these intermittent problems with debugging. 
Previously I rebooted my machine and the break points worked.  However, 
the next day they stopped working and I have not been able to get them 
to work in these sections of code since. I am running on Windows 7 Pro 
and xBase++ 1.90.355.

The other strange thing is that if I just run the application from the 
command prompt it flashes and disappears.  When I run it from the 
debugger it launches and displays as expected.

Thanks,
Simon

Hello Simon,

In the past i encounterd a similar problem.
After some time i found a way to handle this situation.
Since then, all my services come in 2 flavors.
1. as a service.
2. as a windows application.
The web-server part is identical in both flavors.

I debug in the windows application. I usualy starts with setting a 
breakpoint on the httphandler of soaphandler, and start from there,

When i finisch debugging, i recompile all, and distribute the service.

I hope this helps.
Regards,
Jack Duijf

Thanks I will give it a try.

1 - too see if it's actually executing put in a TONE(nnn, 1) command
2 - I have found DLL functions stop BREAK POINTS in the xBase debugger
UNLESS all DLL #defines are put AT THE END OF THE PRG file

I will try your suggestion as well.

I have been having problems with xBase++ but it seems to always come 
down to the debugger.  I have been using the Vx debugger and I have 
noticed a number of strange things.

1) Code sometimes gets skipped when stepping line by line.
2) Code is not always recompiled when I make a change and choose Debug 
"myexe" (F9).
3) I have seen some German error messages about addresses just before 
the debugger stops working etc.
4) Some times break-points in other threads are not triggered.

Do most people use the Vx debugger or do they use the standalone version?

Thanks,
Simon

I seldom use a debugger but I use the stand alone when I really need it.
I consider VX to be still very much a beta.

You might want to try my very simple IDE
