I am experimenting with a combination of Vagrant+VirtualBox+JRebel+Eclipse+Tomcat to develop a Java Servlet application. My Tomcat instance runs in a VirtualBox VM, which for Eclipse purposes means it is a remote server. I was able to get hot deploying (JRebel) and debug mode working.
I haven't yet found a good way to get the logs to show up in Eclipse, though. Ideally, I'd like something very similar to the Console view that Eclipse/WTP gives for local Tomcat instances. Some features I like:
- Lines in stack traces are clickable, taking me right to the source file
- Easily searchable
- Highlighting (errors show up in red)
- Shows up right in my IDE
- Can be cleared when I'm sick of seeing too much
The first two features (clickable and searchable) are the most important to me. Does anyone know of a plugin or separate app that can accomplish this?
