Development how-tos

Tips and tricks

Filter the log file

The log file can be very helpful while developing - but it contains so much information that it might be too much. Often it makes sense to filter the log a bit.

Example:

tail -f catalina.out | grep -v --line-buffered --invert-match "^\t\(at\|\.\.\.\) "
# --line-buffered option makes grep work on a line-by-line basis
