As you work with resources in the workbench, various builders
may automatically log problems, errors, or warnings in the Problems view. For
example, when you save a Java source file that contains syntax errors, those
will be logged in the Problems view. When you double-click the icon for a problem,
error, or warning, the editor for the associated resource automatically opens
to the relevant line of code.
By default the problems view will group your problems by severity.
You can also group them by type or not at all. Certain components will add their
own grouping. For instance the Java development tools (JDT) support adds a Java
Problem Type group. The grouping can be selected using the Group By menu.
The first column of the Problems view displays an icon that denotes
the type of line item, the category and the description. Left-click the item to
open the file in an editor and highlight the line containing the problem.
You can configure the contents of the Problems view to view only warnings
and errors associated with a particular resource or group of resources. This is done
using the Configure Contents dialog available from the drop down menu. You can
add multiple filters to the problems view and enable or disable
them as required. Filters can either be additive (any problem that satisfies at least
one of the enables filters will be shown) or exclusive (only problems that satisfy all
of the filters will be shown) The two most popular filters (All Errors and Warnings on
Selection) are provided by default.
Problems can be fixed by selecting Quick Fix from the context menu. The list
of possible resolutions will be shown.
