Console of Stand-Alone Server in toolkit in Eclipse console view

Creating a SIS in the toolkit is a great option.

At the moment the link to the console log file will open a text editor in the editor area of the toolkit.
Having this integrated in the Eclipse console view will be a great feature.
As alternative, having the view in the same area as the Eclipse console view and ACE deployment log view is also an option as the console log should not be in an editor.

    RFE Review. Thank you for taking the time to raise this enhancement request, which we agree would improve the product. We have received good feedback on the ability to create an independent integration server in the Toolkit, and a natural extension of being able to open and view the console.log file (which is already possible of course). Whilst it is possible to view the content of console.log and move the window to the base of the Eclipse Toolkit window (or in fact anywhere else you would like it positioned!), we acknowledge that it would be better to pipe the data into the generalised eclipse "console view". This would enable better refresh and tailing characteristics and be consistent with how other runtime server logs are represented. Status updated to Future consideration.
