Studio’s Visual Debugger allows you to run your application in Debug mode, stopping execution to check the contents of a message at previously-specified building blocks.

To do this, you set a breakpoint at any building block in your flow that you wish to check or test. When you run your application in Debug mode, the application stops immediately after executing the building block with the breakpoint. Using the Mule Debugger View, you can browse through the contents of the message as it exists at that point in the flow, and evaluate Mule Expressions against the message.

Welcome to this series of “HowTos” covering exceptions in MuleSoft Anypoint Platform. We will be covering many topics specifically with exceptions and exception/error handling in Mule integration flows.
