Subject Re: catalina.out not rolling
Date Wed, 11 Oct 2006 18:27:29 GMT

Thanks for the response.
So how do I stop tomcat from logging to catalina.out and into a 
different file?
Basically I want to send all tomcat output to a file that can roll on a 
daily basis.
Any ideas or examples?

Thanks,
-Riz.
