I'm putting this in the Glassfish v3 component to start out since that's the plugin I'm using. Feel free to push it up.
I'd like to see a couple of options for the server's log output.
1. Most importantly of the two would be the timestamp for the message. It doesn't have to be the long version; just hhmmss or hhmmss:SSS would be plenty useful. Perhaps there could be a checkbox to enable timestamp output and a field for a SimpleDateFormat-like pattern for how to output it?
2. It would also be useful to see the name of the logger that the message came from. In some cases, the full name of the logger would be too long to display while still showing the actual message. Instead, how about showing the 'simple name' of the logger, i.e. everything that comes after the last dot?
The content of the log window is controlled by each plugin...
