You can't do that individually for contexts, AFAIK. Use ServletContext.log() 
instead of System.out.println() to manage log output with Context-specific 

You can change the destination of all System.out's for your entire Catalina 
engine if you edit

System.out is whatever standard output Catalina is pointed at, and, 
respectively, System.err is whatever standard error output Catalina is 
pointed at. Standard output and standard error output are OS concepts and 
they can be set to a file, console, etc. when running the actual server 
startup command.

That command is a part of the script (and its Windows equivalent). 
Search that script for /logs/catalina.out and you will see the output 
streams' redirection in action.

The above is based on the assumption that you use Tomcat 4.1.x.
