Viewing the Tools/Run menu


I've been out of IntelliJ for a while and am now trying to locate where my system.out stuff is going.  I've seen references to the "Run" tool menu but that isn't available in my configuration, at least via the View/Tools menu.  The associated shortcut key doesn't do anything either.  I have my configuration set to "Show console" for output/error streams.  Nothing in the Terminal or Server log windows from system.out.  Suggestions appreciated.

Try checking services tool window:

No system.out info via the Services tool window, either.  I don't recall ever having to coax the system.out output before with this app - it was readily available via on of the console windows, I don't recall which.  I decided to step through to one of the system.out calls, but

when I run the debugger, and the application is paused on a breakpoint, the debugger controls are dimmed.  Not sure if this is part of the same problem or not, just thought I'd mention it.

Are you sure there is a system output in your program? May you share the project sample where it could be reproduced?

My mistake - I was calling the external version of a web service as opposed to my local instance.  Sorry for the confusion!
