You only ever have one context description per app, and it can be in 
server.xml or in a seperate file.

What are you using to log? The java.utils.logging framework will log to 
anywhere you define in its configuration. By default, as a file 
java0.log in the tomcat user's home directory.

I'm not sure what tomcat does with its FileLoggers and catalina.out.
