Eclipse 4 Tools: Event Spy

Details Group Tabs


The Eclipse 4 Application Platform uses a whiteboard mechanism for broadcasting changes to the UI. This mechanism is called the Event Broker and is based upon on the OSGi EventAdmin. The Event Spy (opened using Shift-Alt-F8) is a runtime tool for viewing the events raised during an application. Events are raised against a topic, a "/"-delimited path (e.g., "org/eclipse/e4/ui/LifeCycle/bringToTop"), and the Event Spy supports filtering by particular topics or topic wildcards (e.g., "org/eclipse/e4/ui/*"). Note that the default filter is "org/eclipse/e4/ui/*".

The spy tools are from the Eclipse Platform incubator project (called "e4").

Note: 0.16 is only compatible with Eclipse Platform 4.4 (Luna).
