We just installed TomCat-3.2.1 in stand-alone mode and JVM is jdk1.2.2; Now System.out.println goes to TomCat console, we want to go to a log file. How and where to do the required set-up.
Thanks in advance.

hi,
i too is going through tomcat right now. as per my knowledge a option is to make a log writer that writes to a file or u can also change your default err output to a file. for that, i think u need to connect file output stream and system.err.

Thanks Nitin !
I am looking if there is any way to do set up in web.xml or server.xml or ... to direct the System.out and System.err.
In my program I have used like this
PrintStream n = new PrintStream( new FileOutputStream("c:/khudi/log.txt", true), true) ;
System.setErr(n);
System.err.println("My Error");

This works and goes to c:/khudi/log.txt but to know if we can set up somewhere instead of using the above.
Thanks.
