I have another question:
Where does the GenericServlet.log() method put the log file in a Win9X / Win ME machine?
Cause I was doing this exercise about logging, and could not find where the log file is located.

depends on your server and how it is setup. Try a log/ directory? otherwise, it might help to know which server you have.
