Just been trying the additional logs support added to run configurations in IDEA 7.0. What I'm seeing is the output in another tab next to console. But it isn't colour-coded nor do the Hide INFO, Hide WARNING work as I'd expect. Hide INFO hides everything.. even SEVERE messages. Hide WARNING, Hide SEVERE meanwhile don't do anything.
It appears the logfile display isn't parsing the log levels at all? What logging frameworks are supported here? I'm using java.util.logging which really should be supported by default. Tried both simplelogging and xml formatting (xml formatting is really horrible - appears as text with no special consideration?).
Meanwhile if I spilt the logs to both file and console, the console view works as expected i.e. SEVERE stackdumps appear coloured red -- there's no filtering on the console.
Also had a issue with the "skip content" option, seems with it active when I rerun the app ANY updates to the logfile get ignored. With it off things work. Which seems to be the exact opposite of it's intention? (I think my logging configuration simply overwrites the log on each run, so container logs would behave differently.)
Is this just me?
