Make Java log to screen when connecting to URL/Appliet

Hello all,

I have a Windows server 2008 system with an older version of Java - 6 Update 13.  Please don't ask.

When end users (using a legacy application) connect to a URL and then run a java applet, it is sticking (the little java wheel stops) for quite some time.  The application/applet eventually load but I an trying to figure out what is causing the stick

A while back I accidentally set Jave to log what it was doing to the screen.  Now I've forgotten how I make that useful accident occure.

Can anyone help me get Java to log what it is doing to the screen for a single user and/or all users?

Thank you,

Hello CEHJ - thank you for your response.  I should have been more presice in what I am looking for.  I had already use the steps in the link you provided to set logging for myself.  I am looking to use the deployment.config file to set it for all users since it doesn't seem you can do this for all users using the Java console.

I found the following and it looks like it may have the setting I'm looking for but I have to try it first.  It has the strings to show the concole and turn on debugging....
Yes, that might do it. I've never used it myself

That was it.  I was able to add the following strings to the file for an individual users:


Allowed me to see a dump of everything that happens when the applet is run.

Closing ticket.
