28.5 Troubleshooting

During the build, the output is displayed in the Application Build output pane. This is a normal editor text box which you can search and edit in the usual way.

If there is an error during the build, a backtrace is generated and the subprocess image exits.

28.5.1 Viewing errors

To view the error message choose Build > Display Error or click the toolbar button.

To view the error message and the backtrace in an Editor tool choose Build > Display Backtrace or click the toolbar button. Most errors can be resolved after checking the backtrace.

28.5.2 Clearing the output

To clear the Application Build output pane choose Build > Clear Output or click the toolbar button.

You can set the tool to do this automatically - for the details see Configuring the Application Builder.
