Tracing BizTalk applications using DebugView

With Log4Net and ETW, you are able to do event logging and see what happens in your BizTalk solution. Another option is to use DebugView to trace what is happening. DebugView is an application that lets you monitor the debug output on your local system, or any computer on the network that you can reach via TCP/IP. Its current version, at the time of writing this book, is 4.76, which supports 32 and 64 bits. The tool displays both kernel-mode and Win32 debug output, so you don't need a debugger to catch the debug output of your BizTalk applications, for example, when instrumenting it with Log4Net.
