Fiddler2 is a great way to debug advanced HTTP communication and it can be very helpful in capturing and recreating SOAP messages. Getting up and running with the Android Emulator is pretty easy:
Download and install Fiddler2 (http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/version.asp)
Start Fiddler2 from the start menu or the toolbar in Internet Explorer.
Go to Tools -> Fiddler Options -> Connections and write down the portnumber used by fiddler
Open a command prompt and type:
emulator -avd my_avd -http-proxy 127.0.0.1:8888 (replace 8888 with the portnumber you wrote down in step 3)
(Requies the Android SDK to be in your PATH – if it’s not, navigate to the TOOLS directory in your SDK folder first)
The Emulator will start and you should now be able to see any HTTP trafic comming from the device, captured in Fiddler.
Happy fiddeling :)
