Hey,

Just moved from Tomcat 5.0.19 to 5.0.27 and for some reason when a exception is thrown it doesnt get printed in catalina.out as it does in the 5.0.19 version.

Any one have any idea why this is? Is there different config needed for Tomcat 5.0.27??


Thanks,
Sue

Hi,

Try to change the appropriate Debug Level of Service(Catalina) -> Engine Properties in the Tomcat Server Administration from 0 to your acquired level. Save changes and Commit, you will see catalina_log.todaydate.txt created. The default level of 0 doesn't create the catalina_log file in version 5.0.27.

Thanks very much for your reply. How do I change the debug level, I've never do it and  what should the acquired level be?


Thanks again,
Suzy

Before that, why would you want to see exception thrown at Catalina level ? Exception thrown at this level would most probably be severe exception at the Tomcat engine itself. If you want to see exception throws by your application, its in localhost_log.date.txt.

To enable catalina.out logging:
Open up Tomcat Server Administration (http://yourtomcatserver:port/admin).
Enter your password (username is admin, password is stored in conf\tomcat-users.xml)
Click on Tomcat Server -> Service(Catalina)
Under Engine properties, change Debug Level from 0 to any level you preferred. Higher number generates more detail.
Save and Commit.
Restart the Tomcat service.
You should now see catalina.out log in logs folder
