That's the journaling log file produced by the High-speed ObjectWeb
Logger (HOWL) ( that is used by the
Geronimo transaction manager. This log file facilitates transaction
recovery within the server in the event of a server crash and is often
known as a recovery log. As for disabling the use of this file, I
suppose that a property and a null journal class of some sort could be
implemented, but I wouldn't recommend this.
