Development Workflow for Logger Services

  1. Add an Activator class to your plug-in.

  2. Choose one of the following approaches for giving your plug-in access to ILoggerService. With both approaches, you must modify the Activator class.

  3. In your plug-in, implement the methods that you want to use for logging.

    • Choose pre-defined methods to set the log levels and capture messages.

    • Choose pre-defined methods to capture messages and the exceptions.

    • Instead of using a pre-defined method, define a logging level manually with the log() method.

    • Use log() with the Eclipse IStatus interface to capture the outcome of an operation.
