Declarative Services, Exceptions and Eclipse PDE


When using declarative services in a bundle, which is started in eclipse PDE, usually exceptions occurring ‚inside‘ the services are not traced in the the usual output window. This can be especially daunting for frequent ClassNotFound exceptions.


In the run configuration window in eclipse is a tab „tracing“. This can be enabled for the „equinox.ds“ package and exceptions will be shown in the eclipse output window.
