Console Links - Eclipse Plug-in

Build Status

This eclipse plug-in provides support for file system links in the eclipse console. A link to a file must start with file:// and the file must reference a file in the current eclipse workspace. Only files without whitespaces are supported by the plugin.

Try something like System.out.println("file://C:/workspace/consolelink/pom.xml"); the path in the eclipse console now works as a link to the pom.xml file.
