tail the log file inside eclipse

Most common tool to follow the logs of the application is tail at least under unix, linux and probably mac osx operating systems. So we just need to open a console and type tail -f path/app.log. Fairly simple but it would be nice to have it inside eclipse, which turns out to be also very simple to configure it with the external tools of eclipse.

Open External Tools Configurations:

External tool configuration

External tool configuration

Hit Run and that’s it. Windows users should install a tail for windows first!

Enjoy!
