BizTalk 2009 Orchestration Debugging

HAT in BizTalk 2006,2009

In BizTalk 2006 we was debugging orchestration using HAT(Health And Activity) BizTalk 2006 Tool or writing BTZHATApp.exe in the Run windows.
Now BizTalk 2009 Move this functionality from HAT tools to BizTalk Application Console(MMC).

To debug any orchestration in BizTalk 2009 you can make query for running instances or in-progress instances which found in the New Query tab of the BizTalk Group.
After that you can filter you Query buy instance status, number of records, specific instances names,..etc.
if you find you orchestration in the result Right click the orchestration name and select Orchestration debugger as shown in the below image
debugorch Now after Orchestration debugger screen has been opened you can set you break point into any Orchestration shapes.
I Hope this help.
