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

Though I did not want to trigger a fundamental discussion about Eclipse,
I have to admit that I was kind of clueless as to whether this was the 
right mailing list.

For starters, it would have really been good to have an architecture diagram of Eclipse.
Thus I would have known where to start looking. 
I have now built a somewhat working solution: Using the IConsoloeListener Interface, the plugin
reads the output of every "java" process spawned by Eclipse. I can't say whether this is the most elegant
way, but it works. I receive more info than I would like, but it is now possible to receive the text describing an exception.
Now I still need to find a way to react on compilations failures, because then no java process is spawned.

I am very grateful for your kind responses and will now address my question to the plugin mailing list :)

Thank you all!
