Description of problem:
When building classpath, which uses custom builders, the console seems to be cleared randomly. This makes it difficult to debug builds. Ideally a new console would be created for each *set* of custom builders run and each new console would never be cleared. When building autotooled projects, it is important to have context for the entire build.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
How it should work:
1. Check out Classpath
2. Project -> Build Project
3. (eclipse creates Console2 tab)
4. Console2 logs "ClasspathAutogen", "ClasspathBuildNative", "ClasspathCreateLocaleData" builders output, and never clears itself
This should be filed upstream.
From the upstream bug:
"By default consoles associated with terminated processes are removed when
another process is launched. This can be controlled by a preference. See
Preferences-Run/Debug/Remove terminated launches when a new launch is created."
