<p> The <strong>Console View</strong> displays a variety of console types depending on the type of development and the current set of user settings. </p>
<p><img src="../../../reference/views/console/images/ref-console_view.PNG" alt="Console View"></p>
<p>The three consoles that are provided by default with the Eclipse Platform are:</p>
<ul>
  <li>The <a href="../../../reference/views/console/ref-process_console.htm"><strong>Process Console</strong></a></li>
  <li>The <a href="../../../reference/views/console/ref-stacktrace_console.htm"><strong>Stacktrace Console</strong></a></li>
  <li>The <a href="../../../reference/views/console/ref-cvs_console.htm"><strong>CVS Console</strong></a></li>
</ul>
<p> You can change settings for consoles on the <a class="command-link" href='javascript:executeCommand("org.eclipse.ui.window.preferences(preferencePageId=org.eclipse.debug.ui.ConsolePreferencePage)")'> <img src="PLUGINS_ROOT/org.eclipse.help/command_link.png" alt="Opens the Console preference page"> <strong>Run/Debug &gt; Console</strong></a> preference page. </p>
