Much kudos to Will Sargent over at “Terse Systems”:http://tersesystems.com/ for pointing out an eclipse plugin called “Ganymede”:http://sourceforge.net/projects/ganymede/, which captures “Log4J(Log4J Project Homepage)”:http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/docs/index.html messages inside eclipse itself.
_Updated 11:51am_: Well, from the screen shot and descriptions at Terse Systems, it looked good. However I have been completely unable to find ANY documentation on how to actually install and run the thing! The downloadable packages come with no readme files, the homepage is a directory listing, and the only readme to be found on the sourceforge site was useless. It might be the greatest project in the world but if no-one knows how to use it, whats the point?
