Hello,

Is there support for logging in JSP's, and their associated beans (non-ejb beans)...examples?

Thanks,

you want to have logging for errors etc?

there is a great API: Log4J that is good for this or if you are using JDK 1.4 it has a Logging API built in.

http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/docs/

  Hi,

If tou're using TomCat there's a directory called logs and inside it there are 2 files called stdout.log and
stderr.log
You can use this built in mecanism by printing to System.out or System.err
I agree that maybe this is not the best solution but it's certainly the easiest to implement ;)

Even if you're not using TomCat I'm pretty sure there is some logging system built in whatever servlet/JSP engine you might be using.

    Cheers
