Subject [Tomcat Wiki] Update of "FAQ/Logging" by tchize
Date Tue, 29 Jan 2008 21:48:11 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Tomcat Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by tchize:
http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/FAQ/Logging

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  The Servlet Specification requires Servlet Containers like Tomcat to provide at least a
rudimentary implementation of the {{{ServletContext#log}}} method. Tomcat provides a much
richer implementation than required by the Spec, as follows:
  
   * Prior to Tomcat 5.5, Tomcat provided a Logger element that you could configure and extend
according to your needs. If you are using a Tomcat version previous to Tomcat 5.5, make sure
to read the [http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.0-doc/config/logger.html Logger configuration
reference].
-  * Starting with Tomcat 5.5, Logger was removed and [http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/logging
Jakarta Commons-Logging] {{{Log}}} is used everywhere in Tomcat. Read the Commons-Logging
documentation if you'd like to know how to better use and configure Tomcat's internal logging.
+  * Starting with Tomcat 5.5, Logger was removed and [http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/logging

See also [http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-5.5-doc/logging.html]
  
  In addition, Tomcat does not swallow the System.out and System.err JVM output streams. You
may use these streams for elementary logging if you wish, but a more robust approach such
as commons-logging or [http://logging.apache.org/log4j Log4J] is recommended for production
applications.
