Description emi 2008-07-17 14:55:37 UTC
I understand that NB uses ant but as a normal user that wants to run some application, I don't understand why in the
"Output" window, for a given application I first have to see *tons* of lines from the ant execution, followed with no
other indicator than the tiny "run:" by my *actual* output.

First: The ant output should be totally separated from my output (like I have the Debugger Console, I could have an Ant

If not then at least the separator between the ant text output and the application text output should be more visible,
eventually have 2 separate font colors for the two.

Note: Verbosity level=Quiet still shows a lot of warnings about method or module deprecation for example so it's no fix.

Basically it seems confusing at some point to separate the clutter from ant with the clutter from my own app's log and
such. If I compile and run the app 100 times a day I don't care about how ant's been doing in the last 5 minutes...
