How to enable Java Web Start log

When you’re debugging a Java Web Start client, it can be useful to get the Java Web Start Log.

This is actually quite easy to accomplish:

  1. Go to your Java Control Panel (on Windows: Control Panel -> Java)
  2. Click on the tab Advanced
  3. Under the debugging heading, enable Enable Tracing and Enable Logging
  4. Under Java console, choose Show Console

Now you can launch your Java webstart application again by clicking on the JNLP file, and you’ll get the logging in the Java console.
