Charles Web Debugging Proxy is possibly the tool that will shorten your debuging time significantly. There is no point that I describe something that creators did great …
“Charles is an HTTP proxy / HTTP monitor / Reverse Proxy that enables a developer to view all of the HTTP traffic between their machine and the Internet. This includes requests, responses and the HTTP headers (which contain the cookies and caching information).”
“Charles is especially useful for Macromedia Flash developers as you can view the contents of LoadVariables, LoadMovie and XML loads. Charles also has native support for Flash Remoting (AMF0 and AMF3). More about Charles and Flash.”
Features list is really great and pretty BIG so I can’t just paste it
basiclly it reports and record all you requests including HTTP, HTTPS, XML… it also reports bandwith usage, it includes revers proxy, search, AMF parsing, mapping of files from website to your local disk and many more ….
Good news is that Charles is available for Win, Mac and Linux. Sounds like perfect expansion to your developer environment.
