So, I've switched my colors on the Eclipse Console to show white font over black background. However, some of the output (I believe it might be coming from Ant, or Tomcat - I'm not sure) is coming out as dark blue and orange text.
Where can I change this to white output, as well?

Here is an example of what I'm seeing: https://imgur.com/a/tubF5

Thank you.

This would fit better in our IDEs forum.

Please provide more details about your operating system and which desktop theme you are using. I have had similar issues and found the colours changed with the desktop theme.

The colours for the output from Ant can be configured in Eclipse's Preferences:

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
