When you test the read capability of the adapter, you test the connection definition, metadata of the data source, and operations that the adapter supports. After you specify the test settings and run the test, you can view the result of the read operation, read operation statistics, and the log file.
To debug the code, use the same debug configuration that you used to test the connection and metadata components of the adapter. You can also set breakpoints in the code that you want to debug.
After you define the debug configuration, you can launch the

If required, edit the JVM environment settings. Ensure that you use the same port number that appears in JVM settings for the connection properties in the debug configuration.
Select the required tracing level. The default is normal. Based on the amount of detail that you require in the log file, you can override the default tracing level.
You can set the following types of tracing level:
Does not override the default tracing level.
Logs initialization information and error messages and notification of rejected data.
Logs initialization and status information, errors encountered, and skipped rows due to transformation row errors. Summarizes mapping results, but not at the level of individual rows. This is the default tracing level.
In addition to normal tracing, logs additional initialization details, names of index and data files used, and detailed statistics.
In addition to verbose initialization tracing, logs each row. You can also get detailed statistics on where string data was truncated to fit the precision of a column.
