Originally posted by Mike Curwen: you could install it as a service.. that way it won't open a console and you won't see those messages. (that's for windows).
there's a number of tricks you can pull in unix (like redirecting stdin/stdout/stderr)
Actually, I believe that the equivalent in Windows would be on the order of "TOMCAT.BAT START >NUL:" Possibly spelling "NUL" as "NULL" with optional colon. There are some strange artifacts in Windows device names having to do with backwards compatibility to bugs in MS-DOS V2.2 or thereabouts. However on a production Windows box, I'd install as a service so I wouldn't have to log on just to get Tomcat running. On a test machine, I never pay attention to the "noise" messages anyway. Unless something breaks.
The secret of how to be miserable is to constantly expect things are going to happen the way that they are "supposed" to happen.
You can have faith, which carries the understanding that you may be disappointed. Then there's being a willfully-blind idiot, which virtually guarantees it.
