Re: [eclipse-dev] Luxury edition of the Log view

Eureka - a Log View!  But I have to agree that this will be useful in many more places than PDE and plug-in development.  One of the questions asked most often when triaging PR's is "What is in the .log file?".  In many cases, people aren't certain where the .log file is or which .log file to use (if they are self-hosting).  Using the Log View and allowing them to 'Import' the log file to a known location will simplify this process immensely.

Regardless of where it resides, this is a very useful tool to add to our repetoire.  Many thanks.

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?
