Subject Re: How can I access tomcat's logs using my jsp?
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2012 14:54:37 GMT
I've done this before but always used the apache in front of tomcat to serve the logfiles.

If you're sure you want to let tomcat do the fileserving, I'ld suggest making a symlink in
one of the application folders to the logsdirectory. That should do the trick.
