You need to use something like this:

        <Context path="/atrmin"
          <Logger className="org.apache.catalina.logger.FileLogger"
                  timestamp="true" />

"path" is the context part of the URL, the part that appears after the
domain/port: "http://sepa:8180/atrmin"
"docBase" is the physical location in the file-system/
"debug" can be from 0 to 99: 0 logs minimal info, 99 logs everything.
Typically you'll use >=0 for production servers and <=99 for development
"reloadable" indicates to Tomcat whether you want the web-app to reload if a
new .war is deployed - I think?  I rarely use this: I get Ant to stop
Tomcat, delete the .war and web-app, then redeploy the web-app.
The "<Logger... />" tag tells Tomcat how to handle logging within this
"prefix" - what appears at the start of the logfile name.
"suffix" - what appears at the end of the logfile name.
"timestamp" - record date/time in the log.

> I hope someone can help me.

Well, I hope you find this useful.  Take a look at the examples context
definition, and any others in server.xml - that's what got me started.
