Subject Re: Tomcat changing date format in catalina.out after restart
Date Fri, 01 Jun 2007 22:50:50 GMT
Depending on the way you start the application, the Locale could have 
changed, bacause a differet user or the same user with a newer shell 
profile started the process.

You should be able to find out the environment of the running process on 
the linux system by looking at /proc/PID/environ, where PID is the 
process id of the tomcat process. There you should be able to see, if 
the process has the wrong Locale, or none (which means it inherits it 
from the system settings).

One can also switch Locales only for Java without using OS Environment 
by setting System properties. You can find the complete commandline for 
a running process either via "ps auxww" or /proc/PID/cmdline.
