I've been using various simulators to develop java applications, and I'm impressed on the whole with what they can accomplish. I find, however, that there's quite a bit of information thrown at you in a very short period of time -- most of which I don't understand. I put in my own debugging statements at various points in the code, allowing me to see exactly where issues are occurring, better read program flow, etc, but they often get lost in strings of random numbers or simulator variable updates. I'm all for being thorough, and I like that there's this kind of attention to detail, but most of these debugging statements don't pertain to my code, and I was wondering if there was a way for me to tone it down a bit. If I could work solely off of my own debugging statements and a few details about thrown exceptions it would really speed things along. Is such a thing possible?
On a slightly unrelated note, I also find that the simulators do some things a little too well. I can get my first autonomous GPS fix in less than a second, which makes it a little difficult test my application under real-world conditions.
Questions? Comments? Toasters?

Agreed Dom. However, I think they're improving it along with the speed in which it launches. If there were a command-line argument to not make it so verbose right now then I'm all for it.

I just finished writing a plugin enabling me to filter out my debug prints from the rest of the prints to help tackle this issue. It might help you too:
