public void log(java.lang.Exception exception,
java.lang.String msg)
public void log(java.lang.String message,

Where the log files are created is depends on which web server you are using.

For tomcat, you can see the log files under directory.

And by default,logs goes to file.
TOMCAT_HOME/logs/localhost.<CURRENT DATE>.txt
