 How do you read the output? Maybe you can use Log4j http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j/docs/

How are you running it?  If it's from the batch/shell script, you could do:

xep .... > log.txt

or

./xep.sh .... > log.txt

If you are using the API's within your own Java code, you could redirect the stdout

Try the following for a starter:

I'm trying to do it from code. When I execute the code to transform xml to pdf I see xep log messages in the std out (without having to define a logger). How can I do from code to extract these messages to a file.  This is how I do it with fop:

org.apache.log.Logger log = null;

 PatternFormatter formatter = new PatternFormatter("%{time} - [%{priority}]: %{message}\n%{throwable}" );
 LogTarget target = null;
 target = new StreamTarget(new FileOutputStream(new File("d:\\out.log")), formatter);
     
 Hierarchy hierarchy = Hierarchy.getDefaultHierarchy();
       
 hierarchy.setDefaultLogTarget(target);
       
 log = hierarchy.getLoggerFor("fop");
 log.setPriority(Priority.INFO);

 Do you have access to the source code? You can always alter it in order to customize it.

 Not sure how you could do it withoutaltering the source code. Have you looked at the link jimmack posted?

  Also look here for redirecting the standard/error output to a file: http://javaalmanac.com/egs/java.lang/Redirect.html

 You can alter the output to go into a file instead of the console. What exactly didn't work?

No more details. This is the error from the web server. The details are concerning the coldfusion code from which the java code is called.

Have a look in the server log files.  Hopefully, there will be more details in there.
