I do not know of any way to tell Eclipse to redirect its Console output to a file, which is why I suggested modifying a Tomcat config file. And as far as i can tell, there is no Tomcat built into Eclipse - when you created a Tomcat server you had to point Eclipse at a Tomcat installed on your system. At least, that is what I have to do. Unless you have some Eclipse plugin that comes with Tomcat. But even then, you should be able to find the config files and change them.
