Easiest way is to see it in console window from which you started. Otherwise it should be redirected to the log file.

In Tomacat 5.5.9, console doesn't stay open. It closes after server has started.

than look into log. I think there is some switch when starting tomcat (catalina.bat) which will the window stay open.

In Tomcat 5.5.9, console doesn't stay open. It closes after server has started.

That depends entirely on how it is started and whether it is being run as a service.
If executing from startup.bat uses javaw.exe the window never opens. Browse around in the catalina.bat and setclasspath.bat files to see where all sorts of decisions are made.
When developing a servlet, you should not be running Tomcat as a service, it just complicates things.
