How to debug Servlets

I am having a bit of a trouble to debug incoming HttpServletRequest parameters.
I cannot use the std. System.out.println() statements to see what the incoming values are.

Is there a way to this?

Either use Log4J for logging or run the servlet in an IDE which allows Debugging and step through such as NetBeans

Why can't you use System.out.println()? Which server are you using?
It must be writing the System.out.println()s to some log file.

radarsh,

Thanks for the tip. It actually creates stdout_20060320.log file that contains the System.out.println() output.

Thanks
