I'm using struts framework and was wondering where the servlet.log output goes?

The ActionServlet's log(String, int) method typically sends the log messages to the stdout log, as long as you have declared the init debug parameter >= the int value passed in.
However, as it is actually calling the log method inherited from GenericServlet, this is dependent on your servlet container. You can see the javax.servlet API docs for more info.
