See the Java Console on Mac OS X

While trying out GlassFish Project's Java EE 5 implementation on Mac OS X 10.4, I ran into hiccup with application clients.

I soon discovered that other folks had hit the same issue, and some hints at a solution. Note: the response from the developer, tjquinn, is one of the most complete responses I have ever read in a bug report. All I needed to do was translate his response into Apple.

After some poking around, I found the 'Java Preferences' utility in /Applications/Utilities/Java/J2SE 5.0. This utility let you set the proper flags to open the Java Console.

Once I set it up, I was able to see the output of batch oriented application clients that get launched by Java Web Start.
