I'm afraid it's a black hole for me too as far as info is concerned. I 
know how to set up and run log4j or java.util.logging so I can write log 
statements, control the logging levels etc.

I also know how to configure log4j, java.util.logging and tomcat5 to 
create log files, rotatable or not or max size etc.

I just don't know how the input and output are linked by tomcat. If at 
all. It just hasn't climbed far enough up my list of priorities to 
warrant looking into it further.

I suspect that it's got something to do with org.apache.commons.logging, 
but that is just a wild hunch.
