Hi All,
When I was exporting plugin projects in Eclipse RCP using ant script I got error message that a particular plugin project was missing(although it was present)stating to see log file for more details.
I searched in many locations but couldnt find the log file.

Can someone please let me know where exactly is the log file generated during the export.
Please note that this log file is not the same as the one that is generated due to compilation error in the plugin projects.

Regards
Joshua

You can find a file as "LOG_FILE" in your eclipse root folder which is the log file you were asking for.

To be more specific I get the error during execution of generateFeature target in productBuild.xml located at

..\eclipse location\plugins\org.eclipse.pde.build_3.2.1.r321_v20060823\scripts\productBuild\prod
uctBuild.xml:46: Unable to find plug-in: Plugin name. Please check the error log for more details.

IIRC, there's a hidden subdirectory in your workspace directory (named ".eclipse" or something like that. The log file is inside that subdirectory.

Although every time I've looked at it, the info it presented was useless to me.

The log file should be in the '.metadata' folder at the base of your 'workspace' directory. It should not be hidden. Your on windows or Linux?

It will also be displayed in the Error view
Window->Show View->Error Log
