There is a nice plugin which will allow you to watch the log files in realtime right from Eclipse. It is called Logfile View Eclipse plugin.
Can't get any simpler that this.By using the Eclipse Updata Manager and the plugin update site, should get you viewing in few minutes or less.
Open the Update Manager
Select add new features.
Add new remote site.
Use these details
Name: Logfile tools update site URL: http://www.mimo.ch/update
(Don't mind the warning in the picture. It's because I already had that site when taking the capture.)
Press Finish to start the search
Select the whole Logfile package. Finish, confirm the license and install. Restart workspace when asked and go to the nex t phase, using it.
It is really simple.
Open the Logfile view
Open the log files
