Re: [equinox-dev] Accessing the log without Activator (extendsPlugin)

ILog has been around for a very long time, before OSGi as a runtime in Eclipse I think.  So its access is a bit static.  If you have motivation to access it in an 'OSGi way' then I recommend you enhance the eclipse platform to register a ServiceFactory<ILog> that bundles can use.  The ServiceFactory<ILog> would essentially return the same thing Platform.getLog(Bundle) does.  That way you can get injected with your bundle's ILog with things like DS.

Here is the invocation that I use to get ILog without an Activator:
 
Platform.getLog( Platform.getBundle( "..." ) )
 
Thanks,

Looking at the source code, ILog is not an OSGi service but is constructed as a wrapper object around the OSGi LogService. The relevant code is in org.eclipse.core.internal.runtime.InternalPlatform.
 
Do you need the full functionality of an ILog, or is standard OSGi LogService sufficient? If the latter, then you can use a DS component and just inject a reference to the LogService. If you really need ILog then I think you have to go through InternalPlatform.getDefault().getLog().
