    Tracer sends output to the execution window when running a transaction directly in the transaction editor.

    XMLTracer sends output to a defined xml file. You can then query this file using the XMLLoader action block.

    I only ever really use the Tracer block.

    RE: flightdetails, give more details please.

    Tracer doesn't only log to the Transaction Editor - it will also log to the relevant xMII log (Runner or SOAPRunner) whenever the transaction is executed, depending on the Tracer log level setting and the log configuration.

    XMLTracer writes (appends) to a file on the xMII server (you can specify the file path, but remember that it is from the "server's" point of view). One nice feature of this is that the file is already in an xMII XML format (/Rowsets/Rowset/Row) making it quite easy to display in the xMII UI components. You can combine this with the Generic Sort Filter and other action(s) to create custom logs. However, this is not recommended for high-volume logging. Personally, I prefer to log to a database table for maximum flexibility.

    The Event Logger action performs a similar function, but logs to the "User Log".
