Debugging WCF Rest Service


Here we will see how we can debug a WCF Rest Service using Advanced Rest Client (Chrome Extensions)

Suppose this is our sample WCF Rest Service we want to debug

(Please check the following post on details of creating a WCF rest service <<earlier posts link>>)

The Advanced Rest Client interface

  • Here we have specified Url of the Rest Service
  • The Post Data to be passed
  • The response that we got back

Now to debug our WCF Rest Service set the debugging point and attach the debugger to the Advanced Rest Client process.


Run the WCF Service in the Visual Studio.

Specify the WCF Rest Service URL and Post Data expected and then click on Send on the Advanced Rest Client.

The debugging will start

Hope it helps.
