On the signup page for the mailing list at, they mention
that the mailing lists aren't intended as a tech-support line. They're for
discussion of tomcat.

Good question. In server.xml, you can define "Logger"s, but I don't know if
the names of the loggers (like "tc_log") are hard-coded somewhere or if
they're all user-definable.

What I'd expect is that tomcat would allow you to set up a bunch of log
"channels" in server.xml and then define which contexts use which channels
in server.xml and *additonally* allow you to override those preferences on a
per-servlet basis in web.xml. However, I haven't seen any mention of logging
in Javasoft's servlet 2.2 spec.... so I guess that kinda means that we won't
see any logging-related stuff in web.xml
