I love the GlassFish graphical log viewer (and more generally the Web Console) as well as the NetBeans integration, but in development mode, looking for application System.out’s can be challenging.
So I often use this :
asadmin start-domain --verbose
Documentation for this supported feature is here.
Btw, it seems like this is the only way to have certain JVM options such as
-verbose:gc (although using JConsole may be a better choice) defined in
domain.xml to show up at all.
