I find this is also very useful for people simply using 3rd party plugins that might cause errors. It makes it much easier to report these errors to the developers of those plugins. As a side-effect, it might also avoid some errors to be reported to the Eclipse bugzilla which are in fact errors of 3rd party plugins.Thursday, June 19, 2003, 10:39:39 AM, Dejan Glozic wrote:The view itself is part of a very lightweight plug-in (org.eclipse.pde.runtime) that is part of PDE but is self-sufficient. Still, it is in PDE because it is most useful to developers who tend to cause many exception while developing new plug-ins (ideally, finished products should have clean logs; when they don't, users have no idea what to do with the information :-).Actually, if they are people who develop code using Eclipse JDT but don't use the PDE (such as myself), then they might still know what to do with it. I'm not talking about end users, I'm talking about Java developers who don't necessarily develop plugins (such as those using IBM WebSphere Studio Device Developer, which doesn't have the PDE). In other words, I don't think the log necessarily has anything to do with the PDE; why not decouple it? David
But more generally speaking, if the platform provides error logging, why shouldn't it also provide the View for viewing the log?
Really very nice View, by the way!
