    I am fairly new to Fiddler and I am stuck in a issue.

    I have a WCF service which has a Upload File Method which takes a Custom object

        public class UploadFile
            public Stream fileStream { get; set; }
            public string serverName { get; set; }
            public string accessPoint { get; set; }

            public string resourcePath { get; set; }

    and this is the WCF method Definition

    [WebInvoke(ResponseFormat = WebMessageFormat.Json, Method = "POST", UriTemplate = "FileName", BodyStyle = WebMessageBodyStyle.Bare)]
            void FileUpload(UploadFile uploadFile);

    How do i test this in fiddler?

    Hi, Vishal--

    That entirely depends on what you mean by "test this." 

    Typically, you use Fiddler to capture (and potentially modify) traffic between a client and the server. In other cases, you might use the Composer tab to generate a new HTTP request directly and send it to the server, using Fiddler's Inspectors to analyze the server's response.

    Perhaps you're asking: "What content do I need to add to the Composer tab to issue a request that matches the target API"-- Unfortunately, that's really a question about WCF and not about Fiddler. The simplest approach would be to simply generate a client which talks to this service and use Fiddler to capture its traffic. You can then drag/drop such a request from Fiddler's Web Sessions list to the Composer to clone it and optionally modify it before resending.
