The log we observe is tomcat.log since the produce is using tomcat. The log can become huge (around 80 to 100 Mb).
I want an application which can display me this log file and refresh it every few seconds (since the log file may change every second).
The app should be really fast.
My brother and friend Justin suggested Python. So did a good office colleague of mine. I am going to read something more about Python and see what it can do.
From the experts
PyDev is a free Eclipse plug-in that transforms Eclipse into a powerful Python and Jython development environment.
There is a 'complete install guide' at http://www.fabioz.com/pydev/manual_101_root.html so, if you have any problems in the install, that's the place you should check (it also guides you through configuring pydev correctly).
