Description Sherold Dev 2006-12-04 10:35:10 UTC
It would be useful to be able to filter out selected logging levels

Comment 1 Milos Kleint 2006-12-04 12:26:47 UTC
please specify what the usecase is. Debugging? 
Any specific messages you consider useful?
Comment 2 Sherold Dev 2006-12-04 13:16:21 UTC
For example if you develop a web application targeted to Tomcat, the server
output is full of info message which you usually do not care about.

What you are interested in are only the WARNING and ERROR message, however, in
case of some error you might want to take a look also at the INFO messages and
thus not logging the INFO message at all is not an option.

The same example might apply also in the J2SE development.

This is not realistic to do in a general way in Output Window code.

You should do it in your code as the provider of the stream for Output. Adding
buttons to Output window is possible via APIs. You can do the filtering of the
stream in your code and reload it to the Output Window.
