Debugging Mobile Form

Logging in Mobile Form or any application for that matter is of utmost importance. It helps our customers in debugging the various issues in forms including performance. Mobile Form is a distributed application. It has a server component that generates data for the XFA runtime. XFA runtime is a javascript implementation of XFA reference that runs inside the browser and interprets the data generated by the Mobile Form server to render an XFA template and data in html5. In distributes scenario, logging helps a lot in keeping tab at what is going on at various sites.

Use logging with your Composite Application Framework app

Scott Brodersen

Adobe forums served up some nice information about logging runtime messages for your Composite Application Framework (aka Mosaic) apps. The Client Component Framework (codename: Gravity) provides the logging libraries….Composite Application Framework runs on Client Component Framework….here’s how to get those logger juices flowing:


Yes, Gravity logging APIs can be used in Mosaic as-is. To view the log output:

1.       Open CRXDE lite in a browser and log in
2.       Navigate to /libs/mosaic/components/index/index.jsp
3.       Locate the line in the file that initializes the flashvars variable. In 10.0 this should be on line 65
4.       After that line, add a new line:

flashvars.mdebug = true;

5.       Click the “Save All” button to save the changes

Then, when a new application is launched, a debug window will appear with a “Log Viewer” tab. Note that the debug window will appear in the upper left corner of the browser in a layer that will be behind html or pdf content, so if your application’s layout has html or pdf content in the upper left region you may not be able to see the debug window.


What was the OP’s result you may ask?

“That debug window certainly is useful. It has much more useful information than I was expecting. The DOM Viewer is especially nice. It is good to be able to confirm which libraries get loaded.”
