HI There,

I installed tomcat.exe and started using as window services in windows server 2003 . My questions is:

How can I see the tomcat console and system.out statements when I start the service?

I can see tomcat console when I start the server manually(startup.bat)

Thanks.

Tomcat has a log file. I am not running it on Windows but in the Tomcat home there is
a folder logs and in that folder I have file called catalina.out.
I guess on Windows it should be something similr and even when you run it as service
it should be there. So check in Program Files/Apache and then soomething you'll see there

I actually found in my old Windows instatllation
it is in Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Tomcat 6.0/logs
and there there is a file called stdout.log - it has all my
console stuff including errors. If your log has different name you can
anyway easily find it in this folder, say
ordering by date

If you would like to see the Tomcat console, there is an option in the Tomcat Configuration that creates a cmd window and writes console messages to it.  It's called "Allow service to interact with desktop."

Otherwise, you can check the logs in the location for_yan mentioned above.

you can configure the default logging using logging.properties
