DataPower as a Web Service Debugger

I am really starting to appreciate the WebSphere DataPower appliance. In addition to its stellar performance as an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) and strong security features, it can also be a useful tool in debugging SOA applications and web services. You can set up "probes" which allow you to monitor web service requests and replies that pass thru the device.  There is a user interface that allows you to visually inspect the message contents.  its like having a web service debugger.
