Eclipse Plugins

After having my elcipse install crashing several times, I thought it a good idea to compile a easily accessible list of plugins I use.

Log4E

Allows loggers to be added to classes, replaces System.out and printStackTrace etc

Log4Eclipse

Log4j socket appender host - allows log4j to send log messages directly to eclipse (no need to inspect log files). I have rebuilt it using log4j 1.2.15 see below.
