Writing to Tomcat Log and Serialize Bean

Posted on 2004-10-14

1. Runtime Tomcat errors are placed into an appropriate
log file for the day under TOMCAT_HOME/logs. How do I
write exceptions that I catch from my code. Write now
they are written to System.out.println(); And the
System.out.println is my Tomcat Terminal, which is not very
big and will not hold a day's worth.

2. I have implemented Serializable and Runnable for a class
that I use as a bean in a jsp page. I call a function of
the class in the jsp page where i pass in the request
object. The class's function takes it as an argument
of HttpServletRequestWrapper. Though everything works
smoothly, Tomcat fails to ever make the class serializable.
The log below is yelling that it has something to do with
HttpServletRequestWrapper, I realize that it cannot be serializable.
The j2se documentation for serializable says that in this case
I should override
private void writeObject(java.io.ObjectOutputStream out)
     throws IOException
 private void readObject(java.io.ObjectInputStream in)
     throws IOException, ClassNotFoundException;


can someone elaborate?

Code for the jsp that uses class: http://www.uvm.edu/~nspence/exportsStatus.jsp
Code for the class: http://www.uvm.edu/~nspence/exportsServlet.java

Here is a log of the Serializable problem

I realize that I cannot pass into my class the request object from the jsp. I must read the parameters and them pass then in, also have a function that tests a boolean so that the parameters are not read more than once. I must also add stuff to my session object as I am keeping a shoping cart like array of results,in the jsp. I attempt to do that in the class file also and it throws a null pointer exception when calling the passed in request object's getSession() function.

About catching exceptions in a Log, I use Log4J in my webapp, its easy to install to Tomcat
plenty of Info about it out there and you only need to put a single line of code in
any Exception using the log method and sending the exception message as a parameter.
