Liberator Explorer is a diagnostic tool supplied with Liberator; you can use it to quickly and easily inspect the values of objects in Liberator and send data to the Liberator.
During development, it's often useful to look at the structure and current values of objects. For example, when you're developing an Integration Adapter, you can use Liberator Explorer to subscribe to an object that the Adapter supplies and check that the Adapter is sending Liberator the correct data.
Here's an example of the Liberator Explorer provided with Liberator 6.2.2 and later:
