I am monitoring the communication between two devices. I need to build a simulator for one of the devices. Docklight allows me to define Send / Receive Sequences from the communication data, but copying and pasting all the different requests and answers is such a time consuming and boring thing. Is there a faster way?

We have implemented an additional helper application that can read a Docklight log file and build a simulator project from it. This works nicely for master/slave applications, where Docklight just needs
to answer to a finite set of requests, and you do not require responses with random data.

See the link below for the ‘DocklightProjectGen’ tool and additional information. Just give it a try!
Even if you have to deal with random data, DocklightProjectGen can help you to set up a basic framework for
your simulator, which you can extend and modify manually. We would very much welcome any comments and suggestions concerning this tool!
