General Eclipse HOWTOs

Add Tracing to Your Plug-in

Add a file .option on the top level of your plug-in project. To this file add a line


This setting can be toggled in the trace tab of your launch configuration (it's also possible to edit string values there).

Here is the source code that uses these settings to enable trace messages printed to system log or standard out:

	private static boolean traceData = false;
	static {
		if (Activator.getDefault().isDebugging()) {
			String value = Platform.getDebugOption(
			if (value!=null && value.equalsIgnoreCase(Boolean.toString(true)))
				traceData = true;
