hi experts,

When I start tomcat, i can see many exceptions being printed on the console. Instead of displaying on screen, i want to log them in a log file.

Thanks,

Try check the <Logger> tag in server.xml file of tomcat.

at:

<Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
                 directory="logs"  prefix="localhost_log." suffix=".txt"
              timestamp="true"/>

and edit the directory there..

the server.xml file is usually located at:

<Tomcat Home>\conf

The exceptions are java.net.NetException

see any code in the catch blocks where you may be printing them using printstacktrace etc. remove that code and make use of logger. one such logger is provided by apache itse;f. you see the javadoc s for it
btw, if this solves your prob then this was not the proper place for this q ;-)
