How do you output a variable or a string from and EJB when using JSP

Hi,

I'm using JSP w/ EJB.  How do I output the contents of a variable to a console or something from the EJB?  I am currently using J2EE 1.4 and  System.out.println() doesn't send outputs to the java console.  It's too much work to have to create an extra interface to output to JSP.  Since I need to see what is happening in the EJB, the output is important.  Thanks.

by just writting

System.out.println("Your Comment" + Your Variable);

in your jsp/j2ee program it will write tomcat/j2ee servers console window

ok this might be due to your System.out.println() is not executed due to some logical problem otherwise it will always write to java console.

you can also use output.print() in jsp page it will print output at your web browser and when your work finish remove output.println() from jsp

Create a class with a static method which will do that for you, instead of println, if not working. That class could create your own log file and append to it, instead of the console. But basically the System.out.println should work.

You are right.  System.out.println() prints to the admin console log file.  Thanks.
