Enabling traces in the payments simulator

Enabling traces in the ISO8583 Payments Simulator, just like the ISO8583 message converter and the ISO8583 Host, is a call to the system core to write additional data. This will, most of the times, show raw data (binary data is dumped as hex) for better understanding what is going on, what data is actually being used.

Most importantly, enabling traces shows dumps of TCP traffic or actual data being written to files, queries do database and so on. This is to verify that you are sending the correct data.
