where does java.util.logging go?

Sorry if this is basic, but I have scoured for an answer, without any luck. I am running Tomcat 5,5 on my home development machine with Windows XP using Java 1.5_011. I have a relatively simple Servlet where I am trying to log some information. I can't see where the log goes. I have left everything "plain vanilla" no changes to config or properties files in Tomcat or the JRE. I have in the Servlet
private Logger logger = Logger.getLogger(SearchSelect.class.getName());

the later within the doPost I have

Everything runs, but I can't find the log anywhere.

In Tomcat 5.5/logs, I have logs for admin, catalina, host-manager, jakarta-service, localhost, manager, stderr, stdout - each with a suffix for the current date. Nothing shows up in any of them. I have also looked in my home directory - for any *.log file in Documents and Settings - but nothing there either.

What can I do about this?
I agree. Here's the link:
