Web Debugging Proxy: "Charles" erlaubt die Analyse übertragener Web-Daten

Ein Tool namens "Charles" soll bei dem Debuggen von evrteilten Anwendungen mit Flash, Flex, JavaScript, AJAX, (D)HTML oder Java helfen. Das Mac-, Linux- und Windows-Tool schaltet sich einfach zwischen den Browser und das Netzwerk und fungiert als Proxy-Server, HTTP-Monitor und Reverse Proxy mit Protokoll-Funktion, die das Analysieren der übertragenen Daten stark vereinfacht.

Infos von der Web-Site des Autoren Karl von Randow:

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 can act as a man-in-the-middle for HTTP/SSL communication, enabling you to debug the content of your HTTPS sessions.

Charles simulates modem speeds by effectively throttling your bandwidth and introducing latency, so that you can experience an entire website as a modem user might (bandwidth simulator).

Charles is especially useful for Macromedia Flash developers as you can view the contents of LoadVariables, LoadMovie and XML loads. More about Charles and Flash.

Charles is also useful for XML development in web browsers, such as AJAX (Asynchronous Javascript and XML) and XMLHTTP, as it enables you to see the actual XML that is flowing between the client and the server.

Charles will autoconfigure your browser's proxy settings on the following browsers:
