Subject Re: [Studio] Where to put logs ?
Date Thu, 04 Dec 2014 14:09:44 GMT
Eclipse/OSGI provides a log framework that can be accessed from the bundle
activator class. Maybe it should be returned as feedback to the user
(logging with Eclipse is equivalent of of flying into a back hole and
should be restricted for debugging/support)

"Legacy code" often differs from its suggested alternative by actually
working and scaling.
