Using the next-gen Java Plugin in 6u14 beta 2 (and possibly beta 1 as well, I've only just noticed this) long strings passed to System.err.println() are truncated with this message:
Trace message truncated for length over 10K
This seems like a pretty arbitrary change to me, the application I work on prints out a 30kb configuration file to the console for support cases - we didn't that was particularly big - so this sort of change is a deal breaker.
I have already updated our code to output the data in 10k chunks but it's annoying to have an extra newline every 10k just to keep the plugin console happy. I'm probably going to log a regression bug but wanted to see if anyone here had feedback on this.
