Mac OS 10.6.3
Eclipse 3.6.1 (20100917-0705)

There I am running my little RCP from within Eclipse, and (oddly! :) )
there is a bug, so I want to see the Exn that I have of course carefully
logged ... ooops, no.log file that Spotlight can find, and nothing in
the "runtime-MyLittleRCP.product" directory.

So where do the logged events go?

thanks
Paul

Take a look in the MyLittRCP.app/.... which in reality is a directory!

Um, sorry, no such directory-or-file found ... not even one called "*.app"

"MyLittleRCP.app"?

What path are you expecting to find "MyLittleRCP.app" within?

thanks
Paul

Oh you are running within Eclipse then you should simply pass the
-consoleLog when launching your app.

Into the workspace you defined for the app (If you don't know where this
is, check the run configuration not the *.product). Look in the
..metadata subdirectory.

Sorry, should have made that more clear (since an RCP can of course be
exported and runs standalone). However, even after adding that, I see so
log anywhere -- I am logging an Exception (I can step through the code
there), that gets printed to the console, but when I ask Spotlight to
find a String in that Exception (e.g., a long unique token in the
message, or a stack-frame label, org.eclipse.foo...line-number-etc.), it
is not found.

I then tried to step into the call to Log.log(IStatus), but even after
importing the relevant plug-in from the target platform, had no source
code there:
"The JAR file org.eclipse.core.runtime_3.5.0.v20090525.jar has no source
attachment. You can attach the source by clicking Attach Source below."

This is all so weird, I am beginning to think something has gone wrong
with my install of Eclipse ... I didn't see any special instructions on
the Eclipse downloads site for Mac, nor did I find any at
http://help.eclipse.org/helios/index.jsp -- but are there some
somewhere? (All I did was get the zip and expand it into the
"Applications" folder.)

thanks
Paul

First place I looked -- nothing like that there ... see other
sub-thread, where I wonder if my install is bad ...
