My application rises an exception at attempt to load resource, so I want to debug it. When it started from command line it uses log file created in current directory. Questions: 1. Where can I find any files related to web started app? user.home/Application Data/Java gives nothing (sorry clients Windows platform) 2. Where is a current directory I can find my files? 3. Is any web start console available? Edit: I found answers: 1: "$user.home\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\cache\javaws\http\Dwebstart_url" 2: desktop

There is an option in the webstart application manager to turn on logging for applications. If you do this, then you can get at the log files from the directory: C:\...\Application Data\Sun\Java\Deployment\log\
This logging traps all output sent to the console (your standard System.out calls), so should get your exception too.
A console is actually available if you use webstart via Java 1.5. You can turn on the console and see things output there as your application runs. I don't think the option is available pre 1.5 though.
