You can directly jump to the relevant line in your IntelliJ IDEA editor from vigilog by using the JumpToCodePlugin (see http://code.google.com/p/firewood/wiki/JumpToCodePlugin for more information)


1. Install the plugin in IDEA through the plugin manager.

2. Configure the URL in the options dialog of Vigilog. It will normally be correct by default.

3. (optional) Enable the location info in your log file settings. For log4j, add this line if you are using XMLLayout:


Please note that enabling this in log4j has quite an impact on your performance, so you might want to disable this in production.


When Vigilog finds location information it will display a hyperlink that will make IntelliJ IDEA jump to the matching source code line when clicked upon.
