How to access app's folders


sorry if it's been asked and answered but quick search did not return meaningful results.

Documentation says " The working directory is where application is started, and is also known as the "current directory" and the "sandbox." Then we have list of folders - app, data, temp, logs etc... How do I access these folders from outside (the host I am running IDE on)? For example I'd like to get files from logs folder... I see SSH is listening on Simulator but what user/password should be used to access files over scp?

Re: How to access app's folders

When you use IDE and run your application whatever it prints to stderr and stdout will be visible in console

(this is logs/log file). To look at other files open the view called Target File System Navigtor (Window->Open View...)

You can drag and drop files betweek this view and your projects and also double click on text file to open them in IDE
