how to enable tracing in OWB 11g R2

It took me a while to figure out what went wrong in my previous post
Sometimes the gui doesn't tell you everything and you need to enable tracing. in OWB 11gR2 this is done by creating a file in the admin directory of the owb installation.


in the $ORACLE_HOME/owb/bin/admin directory you must create following file

owbclient.logging.properties
the contents of this file should look like this :

console.messageFormat={1,time}: {2}
file.messageFormat=[{3} ({4})] {1,time}: <{0}> {2}
handlers=java.util.logging.FileHandler,java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler
#for windows
java.util.logging.FileHandler.pattern=c:/temp/owbclient.log
# name the file whatever you want

#for unix/linux
java.util.logging.FileHandler.pattern=/temp/owbclient.log

# Excessive debug, do not use day to day
.level = DEBUG_ALL
java.util.logging.FileHandler.level=ALL
java.util.logging.ConsoleHandler.level=DEBUG_ALL
