Subject Re: Date format
Date Wed, 17 Jan 2007 17:50:10 GMT

do you mean the date format in your SQL changes?

That's hardly a Tomcat issue. I guess that the webapplication relies on 
the default locale to format Dates (that's why you have to set 
LC_CTYPE). Unfortunately the default locale is stored in a static 
variable and can (apparently is) changed at runtime.
Please file a bug report to the devlopers of that webapp. DB code should 
not rely on the default locale.
