IMHO, "catalina.out" has to be mentioned somewhere on that page. As
some start I added it there. Better text is welcome.

BTW, the whole phrase seems strange. I think it says about
java.lang.ThreadGroup.uncaughtException()  which prints to System.err
by default. The exceptions that are caught by Tomcat are printed to
catalina.<date>.log, not only to the console.

Maybe that phrase can be removed as a whole.
