.

I have decompiled it and made a simple change to make it work with IDEA 5.1.2
(it will probably work with all 5.x versions).

http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/LogMonitorPlugin
http://www.intellij.org/twiki/pub/Main/LogMonitorPlugin/Log4jMonitor_36.jar

1) Install the plugin via IDE Settings | Plugins
2) Start IDEA: Log4jMonitor should work, except jumping to source code
3) shutdown IDEA
4) copy the updated jar to ~/.IntelliJIdea50/config/plugins/
5) restart IDEA

This plugin is/was extremely useful.

It works like chainsaw http://logging.apache.org/log4j/docs/chainsaw.html

but it has (or used to have) one very important additional feature: every logline has a hyperlink that makes IDEA jump to the line in your code that created the logging event.

And stacktraces also have these hyperlinks.

Unfortunately, this no longer works in IDEA 5.1.x
because IntelliJ changed the API.

Aiko Mastboom promised to send me the source code
so that I could fix this.
But now he stopped responding to my mails.
