I have an applet running from an html file in tomcat.
I use eclipse+tomcat and have the applet's class in webcontent folder of eclipse's project workspace.

My question is, where are the system.out.println() statement's outputs from applet gets printed out ?
how do i see the o/p messages ?

i put some SOP statements in applet's init method. Applet gets initiated but I want to see the SOP statements getting displayed and producing outputs. Where in eclipse can I see those outputs ?
Please help

In the "Java Console" of your web browser. Details on how to display this vary depending on your browser and JVM implementation.

Thanks Ernest. Found it.

Also, my applet needs an argument while running. Like it needs a -D parameter value.
I can set it if I use appletviewer to run the applet. Now if I run the applet from html and using tomcat, how do I set the run time argument. This is a question off the topic. Dont know whether it requires a different post.

That's what the PARAM element inside of the APPLET tag is for. See here for details.
