I am running Tomcat in Windows using the startup.bat. Tomcat starts up fine and what looks line windows console with a java icon in the top left appears and displays tomcat messages.

Tomcat starts up fine and then I do something that causes an exception which appears in the console. The message is way to big to fit though. It does not appear in the catalina log. Is there a setting to get this into the log?


I've tried increasing the buffer size via the properties of the console but it does not seem to have an effect. Very weird.

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Fredrick!

When you get an exception in Tomcat startup and it doesn't appear in catalina.out, there's a very strong chance you can find it in the localhost logfile instead.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
