Hello all,
There is a mehtod in the GenericServlet class has a log method
void log(java.lang.String msg)
void log(java.lang.String message, java.lang.Throwable t)
It says that it will write the output to the servlet log file.I am currently using netbeans.Where can find this Servlet's log file

Probably nowhere unless you define where to output the content.

For example, you can use the Jakarta's common-logging facility and tell where the output is going to be. For example, using SimpleLog will send all messages to System.err, which you can pick up in your container's output files.
That doesn't sound very clear, does it ? You should read something about logging :
