Re: [ide-dev] Fw: Catching Exceptions via Plugin

Mind you, I did appreciate the question. It reminds us how complicated it can be for new people to navigate our project structure and find the information they need.

I half jokingly tweeted that the world could be a better place if we had one project for the Eclipse IDE and all the committers and users came to one place for all their IDE goodness. It was one of the first things I did when I took over the CDT project leadership, to merge the committer lists of our components into one so that any committer, even if they were working mainly on debug, could go and fix a problem in the builder if they had to. Not that that has happened much, but we did break down the walls and we have that central place for contributors to have discussions and users and adopters to come ask questions.

Hi Felix,

Although I understand you post here, this is not the right list for this question. This list is for discussions about the IDE. Please go to one of the forums for plug-in development:

Or, if you are completely new to Eclipse:

Best regards,

Hello everyone,

We are writing an Eclipse plugin that is supposed to catch exceptions from the running program or get compiler
errors and analyze them. Ideally our plugin would connect to a signal and receive an object with error information.
We were not yet able to produce a fully working version of the plugin, so we are turning to the mailing list for guidance.

As Eclipse has its own table for displaying detailed information about errors, we wondered where Eclipse gets this kind of
information from.  Does the table itself monitor the console output stream and parse it?
Or is there perhaps really something like a signal that we can connect to?

I am grateful for every lead that you can give us :D
