The Debugging Interceptor provides three debugging modes to provide insight into the data behind the page. The xml mode formats relevant framework objects as an XML document. The console mode provides a OGNL command line that accepts entry of runtime expressions, and the browser mode adds an interactive page that display objects from the Value Stack (it requires the Dojo Plugin).

To use the debugging, first be sure that struts.devMode is set to true is enabled through the struts.properties file or struts.xml file, like:

Code Block
xml
<constant <constants name="struts.devMode" value="true" />

Then, whenever a page needs debugging, add ?debug=xml or ?debug=console or ?debug=browser to the URL.
