The Resource Log view displays significant events in current project session.
This view shows the results of the last Add or Remove Feature Set (or WebApp) operation performed in this Eclipse session. The view displays a list of all the files that have been removed, modified, and added to a project, and any errors that occurred as a result of those changes because of the most recent copy or remove operation. Use this view to track the activities that have taken place within the current development session. When Eclipse is restarted, the view is cleared.

to display the view. The view opens in the Task view area of the WebSphere® Portlet Factory perspective.
The View menu provides filtering and copy options. The set of events displayed in this view is categorized into the following filtering types available within the view menu.
Shows everything. The majority of events displayed are successful copy or deletion operations.Exceptional Events (default)
Shows events that you would probably be interested in, including errors, but also files that are found to be user-modified or are overwrite candidates.Errors
Shows only events like failures to remove or copy some file.
In addition to the event filtering options, the Resource Log view popup menu provides a copy operation. Copy places the view contents on the clipboard as text (lines separated by a Return and Line Feed character combination).
The copy operation ignores any item selected in the view.
Copy is handy for providing a comprehensive record of project activities. For example, if you have a situation that requires several files to be overwritten and for some reason they are not, copy allows you to get a list of those files for future reference. In addition, you can manually copy and paste file names into other commands to complete the overwrite process.
