Using the ChangeLog Plugin
The ChangeLog plug-in for Eclipse is a basic set of extensions to enable ChangeLog functionality for projects in Eclipse.
Before using the plug-in, you will want to set the ChangeLog preferences. These include your desired name and e-mail address to use in a ChangeLog entry. The default entries will be your username and your username@hostname. If you set the environment variables: ECLIPSE_CHANGELOG_REALNAME and/or ECLIPSE_CHANGELOG_EMAIL these will be used instead as your defaults.
To access the ChangeLog Preferences, click Window > Preferences > ChangeLog.
The screenshot above illustrates the preferences associated with the ChangeLog plug-in. The effect of each preference is described below.
- The name of the Author to be included in the ChangeLog entry.
- The email address of the Author to be included in the ChangeLog entry.
- The name of the formatter module to use for ChangeLog entries.
- The name of the editor module to use for opening ChangeLog file.
