Hi friends,

my requirement is, I have to write standard output into catalina.out log file. I am trying with below approach
using Tomcat5.5

StackTraceElement []error = exception.getStackTrace();
for(int i=0;i<error.length;i++)

But its not writing into catalina.out log file, it contains only server information (start up and stop).

Please help on this

Use Log4J which give you fine-grained control over your logging.
