Subject Re: logging java outputs to a file under windows 98
Date Wed, 18 Jul 2001 13:29:51 GMT
I've tried all this, and my conclusion was that although I could get a dos 
window to 50 lines (by hacking at some file's properties in the Windows dir), 
developing on win98 is totally crap. You can't tail log files properly, and 
it's one huge pain. My advice is to develop under something more sensible, 
like Linux. 

Of course, what you are looking for is the catalina.log file in the logs 
directory. But don't expect to be able to read it without stopping and 
starting tomcat, or suchlike.
